CEVA completes Phase One of Rolls-Royce project

CEVA completes Phase One of Rolls-Royce project

CEVA Logistics has completed Phase One of a major global inbound aero logistics project for Rolls-Royce to manage shipments of aerospace parts for its civil and defence divisions.

Over 1,200 shipments per week weighing on average 300-500 kilogrammes and ranging from small parcels to out-of-gauge are moved into multiple Rolls-Royce facilities across the UK, Germany, USA and Singapore.

By establishing three global control towers at Ashby-de-la-Zouch, UK; Singapore and Jacksonville, Florida and by utilising its Matrix Supply Chain Management global platform, CEVA has been able to transform the way Rolls-Royce manages its inbound inventory.

In order to achieve this, over 800 individual Rolls-Royce suppliers have transitioned onto CEVA’s Matrix system to provide Rolls-Royce with a single source for the data and visibility of its shipments.

CEVA Logistics executive director, Leigh Pomlett says: “Using our business intelligence tools has enabled Rolls-Royce to have a new level of part visibility and at the same time interrogate their cost base to precisely match their business requirements.  This rich supply of data then enables us to support the future evolution and continuous improvement of their supply chain.”

Rolls-Royce and CEVA are now working in tandem to develop new opportunities for optimising transportation modes to further eliminate supply chain costs.

Domestic plant to plant shipments and a new cross-dock solution combined with Matrix mobile are also planned for Phase Two of the project.
