At a ceremony held recently in Spain, CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies, named materials handling solutions specialist Jungheinrich as its Northern Europe Supplier of the Year.
Jungheinrich won the prestigious award in recognition of the seamless high standard of service and support it supplies to CEVA across multiple geographies.
The award was accepted on behalf of the Jungheinrich Group by Joachim Kiel, Vice President Key Account Management of Jungheinrich AG, and Tony Porter, Divisional Sales Manager of Junghenrich UK Ltd.
Jonathan Morris, Jungheinrich UK Ltd’s Sales Director – Corporate Accounts, commented: "CEVA presented us with this Award because our account management approach and structure allows CEVA to benefit from the same high levels of service and customer support across international boundaries.
"We are able to provide this because Jungheinrich has a well established direct network of International Key Account teams offering high quality products and processes globally.
"Therefore we retain ownership of our downward supply chain and are able to offer a uniform standard of service across CEVA’s business."
