CEVA Logistics, a supply chain management company, and mobile telephony specialist 20:20 Mobile Group has announced a strategic business partnership. The partnership across Europe (through 20:20 offices in Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United Kingdom) will allow both parties to broaden their service portfolio with a true end-to-end offering for telecoms companies. Through the combination of CEVA's logistics expertise in this sector and 20:20 Mobile's value added services and ability to manage product title and risk, the partnership will provide Mobile (Virtual) Network Operators with solutions that enhance the effectiveness of their supply chains. This alliance means telecoms companies can reduce the working capital demands of carrying handset inventory, while retaining control of range planning and purchasing, and can achieve improved levels of customer service through better product availability and more efficient forward logistics and returns processes. CEVA and 20:20 Mobile will jointly provide a range of services including mobile device and accessory inventory management, retail store replenishment, order fulfillment, online sales solutions, recycling programs and product returns management.
