Retreading specialist Marangoni has selected CEVA Logistics to transport and distribute its industrial and commercial tyres throughout Italy. The three-year contract between Marangoni and the supply chain company will see CEVA collect tyres pre-selected by Marangoni for retreading, ship them to a Marangoni-owned warehouse near the company’s Rovereto retreading facility, and then distribute new and retreaded tyres to both retailers and distributors around the country.
“The decision to outsource transport to an external partner is the natural consequence of further developing our company,” comments Brenno Benalglia, commercial director of Marangoni Commercial and Industrial Tyres. “By appointing CEVA, Marangoni can focus its own resources on the selection of tyres and the sale of its products and services. Logistics is an essential part of our business and we believe CEVA will provide the high level of service we require. CEVA’s reputation for operational excellence and flexibility gives us confidence that we can increase the quality of service to our customers and improve our reliability and speed.”
Gioachino Figlia, CEVA’s vice-president of business development for Italy, adds: “We are honoured to count Marangoni among our clients and we are proud to strengthen our presence in the automotive sector following the inauguration of TyreCity. Marangoni will be better able to integrate its transport flows with its production by having reliable and guaranteed service levels combined with full traceability for both its reverse flow logistics and distribution. Our ability to offer agile and creative solutions which match the needs of this important customer will be key to this partnership.”
