CEVA Pallecon , a leading global supply chain management company, has won a new contract with Baker Hughes, a global oilfield service company, covering the management of all inbound and outbound freight logistics within Australasia.
Baker Hughes has operations in over 90 countries and provides advanced products and services to help customers drill, evaluate and produce oil and gas wells.
Under the contract, CEVA will be responsible for the management of all customs clearance, de-stuffing of containers and loose product deliveries to Baker Hughes’ operations. This will be achieved through CEVA’s network of multi-user warehouse facilities in Australia (Melbourne, Adelaide, Darwin and Brisbane) and also New Zealand. CEVA will also be responsible for line haul operations along the West Australian coast, drill bit cleaning and preparation, together with a range of wharf services, including break bulk.
Howard Critchley, Managing Director of CEVA Australia, said: “Signing the new agreement with Baker Hughes boosts our profile as the leading logistics provider of oil and gas spare parts within the region and further enhances the company’s sector presence and regional capabilities. Importantly, CEVA’s office in Perth, Western Australia, will become the control centre for all Baker Hughes activities.”
