CEVA Logistics extends contract with Messaggerie Libri


CEVA Logistics has announced that it has extended its long-standing contract with Milan-headquartered Messaggerie Libri (Me.Li), a distributor of editorial products. More than 600 publishing brands partner with Me.Li which has over 4,000 nationwide bookshops and stationery stores.

The two companies have been working in close collaboration since the signing of their first contract in 1999 and this new contract takes its extension to the end of December 2021. The new contract also includes provision to negotiate a further long-term deal.

CEVA’s City of Books itself is a unique, green supply chain facility dedicated to the publishing sector, launched in 2010. Covering more than 80,000 sq m, it can handle over 90m books per annum. The site includes a photovoltaic plant with over 35,000 modules, covering an area of 6,500 sq m. This translates into 3,780 MWh annually, the equivalent to the energy generated in 2,000 homes, saving on average of 1.6m kg of CO2 emissions.

“Throughout our two decade long relationship with Me.Li we have sought to continuously innovate our contract logistics services in this highly specialist market”, said CEVA Logistics Managing Director Italy, Christophe Boustouller.
