CEVA Logistics new global headquarters in Marseille was officially opened by the Prime Minister of France, Edouard Philippe and the President of the French Region “Sud”, Renaud Muselier accompanied by CEVA‘s CEO, Nicolas Sartini, and Rodolphe Saade, Chairman and CEO, CMA CGM Group.
Following a guided tour of the offices where they met with some of the 170 executives based in the company headquarters, they were shown how digital projects developed by the teams in Marseille will help transform the way CEVA operates.
Amongst the many digital transformation projects developed in Marseille, the Prime Minister was shown a digital platform that will display the carbon footprint of customer supply chains by mode of transportation.
The platform, developed in partnership with startups housed in ZEBOX, the incubator created by Rodolphe Saade, will leverage the efficiency of delivery options in the best interests of customers and the environment. The collaboration with Wing, a young French company, offering new urban logistics solutions for e-Merchants, was also discussed.
In his speech, the Prime Minister highlighted the role of the logistics sector, ”Our country does not sufficiently understand the importance of the supply chain, the importance of well-organized flows. I think we must defend this sector which represents a lot of jobs, strategic and economic issues, especially for a city and a port like Marseille. Intelligence in logistics is at the heart of tomorrow‘s economic development.”
