Webtech Wireless Announces Contract With CEVA Logistics
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- Webtech
Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet
location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today
announces that it has signed a contract with CEVA Logistics to
increase its ability to integrate better with a major North American
auto manufacturer. Last April, CEVA began using Webtech Wireless data
pumps to integrate internal data to a 3rd party logistics management
back-end systems, and as a result, GPS/AVL data obtained through
Webtech Wireless technology integrated to Penske Logistics' supply
chain management ensures auto parts are delivered on time to Ford
Motor Company's many manufacturing and assembly plants. This new
contract expands on the proven success of Webtech Wireless' solutions
CEVA Logistics is a leading logistics company, providing end-to-end
design, implementation and operational capabilities in freight
forwarding, contract logistics, transportation management and
distribution management. CEVA delivers parts throughout the US and
Canada to its customers manufacturing facilities. The addition of the
Webtech Wireless data pump has enabled CEVA to better respond to the
needs of its customer. A deployment of additional MDT3100 units for
its Michigan location will bring CEVA's complement of the Webtech
Wireless solution to 250 data pump activations. "There are a lot of
advantages. The MDT3100 units are easy for drivers to use. They don't
need an extra keyboard and we expect that more of our drivers will
want to use them. We're ahead of the curve", says Ray Cossette,
Systems Operations Analyst at CEVA Logistics.
"Our telematics solutions are a key part in optimizing supply chains
and logistics. CEVA Logistics is an excellent example of how we
partner with customers to deliver end-to-end solutions that make a
difference for companies like Ford," says Scott Edmonds, President
and CEO. He continues, "We look forward to the next Quadrant
deployment to help CEVA reach the next level in its business."
