CEVA expands into beauty industry in Brazil with Sephora

CEVA Logistics announced the signing of a new agreement with Sephora, a cosmetics retailer owned by LVMH, (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton), a luxury goods group.

Under the contract, CEVA is expected to consolidate a variety of cosmetic products such as make-up, fragrances, hair care products, accessories, body and bath products and its own brand, Sephora Collection, from 40 distribution points within Brazil into one of CEVA’s multi-user sites located just outside of São Paulo. In order to meet Sephora´s requirements CEVA has invested in climate control infrastructure to enable the storage and handling of over 7,000 SKU and approximately three million individual order items each year.  CEVA is expected to manage the inbound, warehousing, outbound and reverse logistics to Sephora stores across the country. 

Fabio Goncalves, Supply Chain Regional Director for Sephora said, “We are very happy to enter this partnership with a recognized global player in the 3PL business.  As we plan to grow in Brazil we can see that CEVA will support this growth and be an excellent partner to deliver our needs.  “We chose CEVA because we needed a dynamic 3PL who could respond to our needs and precisely tailor their service offering to the fast-moving needs of a cosmetic house.  Every second counts for us and the seconds with accuracy which CEVA will deliver are even better”.
