it was then that the logistics business TNT started up in Australia. Almost four decades later, the company EGL was founded in Houston, Texas as a national heavy freight transporter. In 2006, Apollo Management L.P. took over TNT Logistics and renamed it CEVA, which began as a pure contract logistics company. One year later, CEVA merged with EGL – the name CEVA was retained and at the same time the range of services was expanded. As a world-leading logistics provider, CEVA has offered integrated Supply Chain Management on two levels since 2007:
contract logistics and freight management for internationally active large and medium-sized companies. The services in the area of contract logistics include inbound logistics, production supply, outbound and distribution logistics as well as after sales logistics. Services in the area of freight management cover air, sea and land transport as well as further transport-oriented services such as customs clearance, simplified trade and customs processes, local pick-up and delivery services as well as material management.
