CEVA Logistics has won the title of Logistics Company of the Year in Italy for the ninth time. Awarded by Assologistica, the Italian association of logistics companies the trophy recognised CEVA's focus on technical innovation in transport through its Paperless project.
The Paperless project in Italy was developed as a working trial following analysis of the company's processes across the country. The aim was complete remove paper from the supply chain process and involved creating a document platform which could be accessed through a web portal in an office or via a smartphone.
