VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2012) - 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 for CEVA.
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.
