Supply chain company Ceva Logistics has signalled its commitment to existing customers and market growth in Western Australia with the official opening of state-of-the-art facilities at Hazelmere and High Wycombe.
 
The 60,000m2 multi-user complex at Hazelmere, and bespoke 40,000m2 integrated transport and new vehicle storage facility at High Wycombe, were officially opened by the Bill Marmion, Western Australia’s minister for finance and mines and petroleum.
 
The multi-user Hazelmere site has some 4600 racking locations, continuous loading docks with dock levellers, a weigh in motion weighbridge, a 4000m2 breezeway, advanced materials handling equipment, integrated IT and warehouse management systems, and a bonded warehouse.
 
The High Wycombe site, which is designed to process some 25,000 vehicles each year, features hail protection nets, an automated car wash and truck height detection sensors.
 
“Ceva has a long history in Western Australia, and we are very excited about this next chapter,” said Clayton Noble, Ceva’s managing director for Australia and New Zealand. “Our new facilities are an important investment that will give our customers tangible benefits through economies of scale, shared resources and industry-leading technology.”
 
Ceva constructed the new buildings near the Perth Airport freight hub and key arterial roads including the Roe, Tonkin and Great Eastern Highways in close proximity to key infrastructure, and air and ocean service connections. Major customers across the automotive, energy and mining, and consumer and retail sectors have partnered with Ceva and become the launch tenants of the new facilities.
 
For fast and efficient movement of goods, both warehouses have claimed industry-leading technology, processes and optimised layout configurations. The sites have also been built incorporating sustainable design features including translucent roof sheeting for natural light, high efficiency T5 warehouse lighting, solar hot water systems, drought resistant landscaping and rainwater harvesting.
