CEVA powers WA electricity logistics network


CEVA Logistics will service one of the largest isolated electricity networks in the world under a new logistics contract

CEVA Logistics will service one of the largest isolated electricity networks in the world under a new Western Australian logistics contract.

CEVA says it has signed a contract with Western Power to provide integrated logistics services for the electricity network, comprising over 88,000km of power lines supplying power to almost 900,000 properties across Perth and the regions.

The supply chain services provider will supply warehousing services, materials handling and transportation operations to Western Power.

CEVA Australia Managing Director Howard Critchley says the partnership strengthens the company’s capability, infrastructure and network in Western Australia.

"Importantly, as part of the service solution for Western Power, CEVA will manage a range of specialised and often heavy goods such as transformers, cable, street lighting and telecommunications equipment under controlled conditions for short and long periods," he says.

Western Power Managing Director Doug Aberle says the deal will deliver improved customer service and provide an integrated transport and logistics solution for intrastate services to Western Power depots and construction sites.

"In addition, CEVA’s focus on achieving operational excellence has already seen development of a framework that clearly defines specific quality and service levels to ensure that the operation not only gets off to a good start, but that it is also continually improved upon," he says.
