As a move to extend its capabilities across Central Asia, CEVA Logistics has opened a new office in Kazakhstan’s largest metropolis Almaty which will serve clients from across the region, besides also being the regional focus for customers in Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan.
Kazakhstan is an important staging point between the East and West (China and Europe), and with its well-developed railway network, it is additionally able to facilitate a number of route optimising alternatives such as block trains from China to Europe and Trans-Caspian delivery from China to Turkey.
CEVA Logistics’ Regional Head IMEA Bruno Plantaz said, “Central Asia is a growing strategic market because of its important transport connections between East and West. Kazakhstan is at the heart of that development and we are delighted to be opening our own CEVA Logistics’ offices there to provide locally-based service to customers with a wide range of requirements. Our ambition for this region does not stop there and we are already looking at opening other offices in this region in the coming months.”
From its headquarters in the Kazakh city of Almaty, CEVA will offer a full range of multi-modal services including air, ocean and road solution to its customers across and beyond the region.
Almaty also serves as an air gateway to a number of other Central Asian markets, and CEVA Logistics plans to operate an office at the airport.
The predominantly export-driven Kazakh economy means CEVA Logistics’ team will serve a wide range of industries handling commodities such as mineral fuels, iron, steel, copper, oil seeds and frozen meats.
