CEVA signs three-year deal with LUSH in UK and Ireland


CEVA Logistics has announced that it has been awarded a three-year deal to manage and deliver LUSH products to its stores across the UK and Ireland. With this new agreement, CEVA will be responsible for moving the full range of items sold by LUSH.

CEVA will make daily collections from LUSH’s UK distribution centre at Poole. Collected merchandise will be taken into CEVA’s overnight distribution network for delivery throughout the night to LUSH’s store network in the UK and Ireland. LUSH’s store managers will benefit from timely deliveries to their sites and decanting at night through unassisted deliveries to ensure minimal disruption to daytime activities. By using the CEVA Track app, they will also receive up to date/real-time delivery information on their individual orders.

Double deck trailers will be used for trunking, which should reduce distance travelled and vehicles on roads. Additionally, the CEVA vehicle fleet is fitted with telematics, which will provide data and insight to influence driver behaviour and reduce fuel consumption. As a further part of the value-added solution, CEVA’s shared user network will be utilised to perform final mile delivery to almost 80 stores and ensure full visibility of all products as they are moved.

Eddie Aston, CEVA’s UK, Ireland and Nordics Managing Director said: “Our shared values mean LUSH will benefit from CEVA’s approach to minimising our combined impact on the environment through environmentally responsible logistics solutions. We will use our experience and expertise to deliver and add value to their supply chain operations and ensure a focus on continuous improvement.”
