Supply chain management company, CEVA Logistics, said Tuesday it will expand its presence in the San Diego market with a new freight management and logistics facility totaling 125,000 square feet and 23 dock doors.
The new facility will be the of its kind serving the San Diego market, according to the company, and represents the largest new warehouse agreement completed in central San Diego in the past five years.
It will combine two current CEVA operations; a customer-dedicated facility presently based in Poway, California, and the company’s current freight management operation, which is located in the same office park as the new facility; near the San Diego International Airport and all major road arteries in the area.
This follows CEVA’s recent expansion of its Los Angeles management operation, which it said is one of the largest in its network, now comprising three facilities totaling more than one million square feet and 170 dock doors.
“Our goal for our San Diego operations is to bring innovation and unparalleled knowledge of our customers’ business needs to bear on their total supply chain requirements, including transborder solutions such as customs brokerage and cross-docking on both sides of the border,” said Rick Goldenstein, district manager for CEVA in San Diego.
Goldenstein added that CEVA had outgrown its Poway contract logistics location, as business there had more than doubled in the past several years, while demand for CEVA’s freight management home delivery services in the San Diego market has grown substantially as well, exceeding 100,000 deliveries per year.
CEVA’s home delivery network provides a dedicated end-to-end network solution incorporating line haul and final mile services with delivery options for heavy, bulky items for consumers.
