CEVA Logistics has opened Central Distribution Center (CDC) 2 in Shah Alam, Malaysia, 16 miles from Kuala Lumpur.
Constructed on the same site as CEVA’s CDC1 at Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam, CDC2 gives it 33,000 square metres of additional warehousing and office space.
The combined warehouse footprint of the new CDC2 and the existing CDC1 now totals approximately 67,000 square metres making it the largest site in CEVA’s South East Asia (SEA) cluster, which comprises Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.
CEVA’s facility at Bukit Jelutong is in a strategic industrial area with excellent logistics infrastructure, connected to a highly-developed road network and an expanding rapid transit system, and located close to Malaysia’s main port in Klang.
The company says having two warehouse facilities on one site enables it to optimise the deployment of resources and equipment, for customers’ benefit.
The new, enlarged facility strengthens CEVA’s capabilities to offer fully integrated logistics and supply chain solutions to new and existing customers in Malaysia.
CEVA’s chief executive officer, Xavier Urbain says: “Malaysia is one of our key markets in the Asia region. The country has excellent connectivity both domestically and internationally.
“It is also in a region where a strong middle class is emerging to drive Asian consumption upwards, positively influencing trade and supply chain activities across various sectors. All these factors make Malaysia a strategic market for CEVA to invest in, allowing us to enhance the scope and quality of our services for customers.”
The new CDC2 is a double story warehouse facility with direct truck access to 40 loading docks on both levels. It is the first design of its type to be approved in Malaysia, as part of a drive to maximise the productivity of land used for warehousing space, thus catering to the growing demand for contract logistics.
The facility is purpose-built, and designed to provide both ambient and temperature-controlled storage.
