Dutch Logistics Giant Opens New Victorian Supersite

10 February 2017

Another global supply chain has chosen Victoria to establish its Australia and New Zealand headquarters with CEVA LogisticsExternal Link officially opening its transport, distribution and logistics hub in Truganina.

The $80 million, 166,000 square metre supersite – equivalent to eight MCG playing fields – will employ 250 workers in Melbourne’s west and create around 40 new positions.

The facility is largest in the southern hemisphere – servicing high profile customers including General Motors Holden, Continental Tyres, NBN Co, Michelin, Caltex, Accent Group and Mazda.

CEVA will also operate Nissan Australia’s new state-of-the-art National Distribution Centre.

Transport, distribution and logistics are some of Victoria’s most important industry sectors, contributing $21 billion annually to the state economy and employing around 260,000 people across Melbourne and regional Victoria.

CEVA joins other major companies such as NewCold Logistics, Border Express, Toll, Linfox, DB Schenker, Silk Logistics and Australia Post who’ve chosen Melbourne as the location for their corporate headquarters.

The Netherlands-based company is a world leader in freight forwarding, contract logistics, and transportation and distribution management.

The company employs more than 42,000 people in more than 160 different countries, including around 1,800 in Australia.

The Andrews Labor Government will continue to support the logistics industry in Victoria – a huge contributor of jobs and economic opportunity statewide.
