What employees are saying about Ceva Logistics

  • Best thing

    It's job and finish after you have loaded for the next day, however lately we have been getting back early and standing around for ages waiting for the loads to be ready so we can load for the next day.

    Worst thing

    Management tend not to talk to you with no respect, the career progression is non existent despite being told there were lots of opportunities when I first started, and you are given routes that are way to much for one person.
