Ceva Logistics has appointed Jerome Lorrain chief operating officer of its newly created ground transportation business line, which will operate alongside its air, ocean and contract logistics operations.
Ceva Ground, based in Houston, is the sixth-largest carrier in the air and expedited freight sector, according to Transport Topics’ list of the largest for-hire carriers in the United States and Canada. The company reported revenue of $225 million in 2014.
As part of an operating model introduced in 2014, Ceva’s ground business will remain “strongly embedded as a part of the local cluster strategy,” Ceva said in a statement.
“Lorrain’s first priority will be to optimize Ceva’s U.S. organization by further developing its regional footprint and to align its global approach through stronger coordination and optimization of processes,” the company stated.
