Current CEO: John Pattullo
CEVA Logistics began in Australia during the late 1940s. During that period, the company was known as TNT Logistics. It did not change the name until 2006. By the following year, the transformation of the company and its new image was completed. Since then, CEVA Logistics has been providing quality logistics services around the world. Their activities extend to managing freight in transit, contractual logistics and distribution management. The company has locations all over the world and employees almost 50,000 people throughout these outlets. They are active in over 150 countries and have a steady rate of growth in the international business scene.
The logistics industry is already highly competitive, but with the introduction of standard international regulations, it became even more complex. In order to meet the constantly changing demands of the various parties affected by logistics regulations, including the customer base, the company must seek out the most talented and skilled individuals to keep operations moving smoothly. The logistics industry includes every link from the supply chain to the retail outlet. This includes a wide variety of supplies and goods. Customers could include governments as well as other businesses, and the nature of this business is constantly changing. Software has been used to streamline some of the essential processes, but their inadequacies can be costly. This is good news for some employees who are seeking long-term employment in departments where software cannot replace human workers.
There are many CEVA benefits offered to company employees. Enrollment in the benefits program is done online. In addition to the company’s standard benefits package, employees are encouraged to continue their professional development throughout their time with the company. For life-long career seekers, this is the kind of environment that will always compensate for any other drawbacks.
The standard package includes:
• Paid vacation
• 401k plans
• Health, vision and dental plans
• Bonus offerings
• Life insurance
• Pension plans
The overall prospects of CEVA Logistics careers are generally good, depending upon one’s area of expertise. For example, truck drivers and security personnel are generally indispensible, regardless of new developments in technology. The demand for reliable workers drives the CEVA Logistics culture. Since the company is involved in procurement, production and distribution logistics, working at CEVA could mean working in any one of these divisions.
