Ceva Logistics has been named Logistics Company of the Year in Italy for the fifth time by Assologistica, the leading Italian association of logistics companies.
 
This year's award was given in recognition of Ceva's TechCity – a logistics hub dedicated to the warehousing, handling and cross-docking of products for the electronics sector – which opened in June last year.TechCity covers 90,000 square metres in Pognano, in the province of Bergamo. Thanks to its location at the heart of Ceva's integrated European logistics network, it provides access not just to the whole of Italy, but also to all other major markets throughout Europe.
 
"It is an honour to receive the Logistics Company of the Year Award for TechCity,” said Vittorio Consonni, Ceva’s technology sales manager. “TechCity is an innovative and strategic logistics solution dedicated to electronics companies; by bringing producers' and retailers' warehousing and information systems together under one roof, it enables them to rationalise inbound cargo flows, achieving significant economies of scale and enhanced standards of service for customers.”
 
The Assologistica awards, considered the most prestigious logistics accolades in Italy, are organised annually, and are now in their tenth year.
 
Emanuele Puglia, Ceva's sales manager for consumer and retail, added: "TechCity is the third of Ceva's sector-focused multi-user hubs, sharing infrastructures, networks, people and processes. In the near future, Ceva in Italy intends to implement this strategic approach to further sectors, in order to replicate the benefits of this innovation."
 
With this latest award, Ceva in Italy has been crowned Logistics Company of the Year five years in a row. In 2010 it received the award for its City of Books facility, in 2011 for the Milan control tower, in 2012 for its airport project and in 2013 for its City of Pharma.
