CEVA develops Western Power’s supply chain strategy

  • Posted on Wednesday 12th, September 2018.

Global supply chain business, CEVA Logistics, has implemented its Matrix warehouse management system (WMS) and signed a five-year deal with Western Power – Western Australia’s energy provider.

CEVA Logistics has worked in close partnership with Western Power to develop and support its future supply chain strategy, operating out of its main distribution centre in Jandakot as well as its regional and metro depots.

Key to the new strategy, according to CEVA, was the implementation of Matrix WMS in order to deliver further functional improvement, better stock visibility and tighter controls which together drive increased logistics productivity for Western Power.

CEVA Logistics has been providing a comprehensive range of logistics services to Western Power since 2008. In addition to warehousing, transport, depot management and reverse logistics it also provides value added services including cable cutting and coiling, evidence retention, “pole to hole” management, bundling of transformer returns, emergency call-outs and quarantine management. The launch of Matrix WMS and the pooling of all specialist knowledge between the two teams helped achieve its seamless induction.

“We recognise these complex projects do not happen through good luck but through a methodical approach requiring careful planning, constant dialogue and in depth testing,” Western Power Supply Chain Manager, Colin Davis. “It was a great collaborative effort, which supports our focus on improving our business efficiency to better serve our customers.”

Ceva Logistics Managing Director – Australia and New Zealand, Carlos Velez Rodriguez, said that team members have worked diligently to deliver on Western Power’s needs.

“We believe, the introduction of Matrix WMS is the start of a new long term strategic relationship between our two organisations and we look forward to enabling Western Power to continue to efficiently deliver energy to the WA community,” he said.
