CEVA Logistics has expanded its services provided at its multiuser Ontigola hub in Toledo, building a 240 square metre specialist Chemical Storage Area.

The supply chain specialists built the new area in the Ontigola warehouse as part of its commitment to providing best in class services and give a more streamlined focus on customers. A team of specialised engineers built the area in compliance with all existing rules and requirements relating to the safe storage of chemical products and risk prevention in the workplace, and the completed area was approved by the relevant authorities.

The Chemical Storage Area is an independent fire fighting area, equipped with specialist fire-fighting equipment including sprinklers and manholes placed in every door to collect any possible spill of product.

 “The building of the first Chemical Storage Area for CEVA in Iberia demonstrates our commitment to meet the needs of customers in this highly regulated market,” Marco Galbusera, CEVA’s Manager Director in Iberia said. “This investment will allow us to extend our relationships with our customers and will help us to keep growing our footprint in the logistics market.”

Strategically located south of Madrid, the Ontigola site is well connected by the N-IV road and the R4 highway, as well as the planned motorway to Valencia, an increasingly important import hub.

The center at Ontigola will make use of shared technologies, skills, space and transport, to deliver true value and considerable economies of scale to customers. In the current economy where cost effectiveness is critical for any supply chain, multi user sites offer synergies to meet the most complex needs of customers even in highly regulated and sophisticated markets, like the chemical industry.
