CEVA Logistics closing Cumberland County facility

A global supply chain management company has decided to close a second midstate logistics facility this spring.

CEVA Logistics, which last year informed state officials of a plan to shut down its York County facility, also intends to close a Cumberland County operation in North Middleton Township, near Carlisle.

Up to 101 employees will lose their jobs, according to a Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, or WARN notice, filed with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry.

The Carlisle-area distribution center is set to close by May 1. CEVA’s York County facility in Fairview Township was scheduled to close by the end of March, putting 173 people out of work.

Efforts to reach company officials were not immediately successful Wednesday morning.

In both cases, CEVA officials informed the state that the closures resulted from losing a contract to provide logistics services to an unspecified customer.

CEVA Logistics is a Dutch company owned by a U.S. private equity firm. According to its website, CEVA’s U.S. operations employ more than 9,000 people at 126 sites around the country.

A map of U.S. locations on that site shows the Carlisle facility is CEVA’s only remaining Pennsylvania operation, although the company maintains a Philadelphia-area presence in Bridgeport, N.J.
