Neovia Logistics today announced it has been awarded a five-year and eight-month contract with Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe NV (HCME) to takeover and manage its warehouse operations in Oosterhout (Breda), The Netherlands.
Starting May, 2015, per terms of the newly awarded contract, Neovia will takeover the people and assets required to manage HCME’s warehouse operations, transportation and distribution of Hitachi machinery spare parts in Europe.
Drawing from its regional expertise and dedicated resources supporting other industrial and automotive clients in the region, Neovia will provide world-class levels of service and quality to HCME’s customers, while also focusing on cost-effective warehousing and transportation solutions.
“Neovia and HCME have been collaborating extensively on this project in order to deliver a smooth transition to Hitachi’s customers and employees, so that we are prepared to deliver an on-time, on-performance and on-budget start-up,” said Pascal Born, Business Development Director of Neovia.
Together with its dealers, HCME and Neovia are focused on a seamless transition to ensure that the provider transfer causes no impact on HCME’s reputation or disruption of service with its customers. This was a key component that was taken into account throughout HCME’s provider selection process.
“Neovia offers a very unique combination of OEM background and 3PL flexibility,” said Born. “We can provide HCME with the differentiated service levels they require, leading to higher customer loyalty at lower costs – the same superior aftermarket excellence that we have been delivering to many other automotive and industrial customers for more than 25 years.”
“We are excited to start this close cooperation with Neovia as a global leader in spare parts logistics. We are confident that through their expertise and experience, we will be able to take our spare parts business to the next level, meeting and exceeding our customers’ requirements,” said Moriaki Kadoya, President, CEO & Chairman of the Management Board of HCME.
With its operational and manufacturing heritage of over 85 years, Neovia is strongly positioned to deliver the quality of service that HCME expects from its logistics service provider.
Neovia provides best-in-class integrated supply chain services to customers in a variety of industries including automotive, industrial, mining, aerospace & defense, technology and energy.
