CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies, has announced that the company is creating a campus consolidating several facilities in Mt. Juliet, TN, a suburb of Nashville.
Located in the Mt. Juliet Industrial Park, CEVA’s new 700,000 sq ft facility (known as Beckwith II) will provide a more efficient, productive and technologically sophisticated environment for CEVA and the customer on whose behalf the company operates the facility. CEVA is combining two existing properties in Nashville plus a network distribution site that had been based in Chicago into the new facility.
Services provided at the new facility will include fulfilment, storage, value added services and Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) for over 100 suppliers of CEVA’s customer. The new facility joins an existing 480,000 sq ft CEVA facility on the Mt. Juliet campus (the Beckwith III building). Additionally, CEVA is presently utilizing the third building on the site (Beckwith I) for storage purposes. CEVA will occupy the new facility in mid-September.
“The creation of the Mt. Juliet campus is significant on many levels,” stated Les Grubbs, Senior Vice President of Logistics for CEVA in the Americas. “This marks an extension of a longstanding relationship with this strategic customer and, thus, a continuation of quality jobs in the Nashville market. Additionally, the facility enables us to provide our customer with a new level of fulfilment technology which will drive efficiencies and help enable their future success.”
CEVA also runs a regional cross-dock operation for a large Automotive customer in Mt. Juliet and operates a Freight Management facility in Nashville. The company’s workforce totals approximately 1,100 in the Nashville area.
