in the USA.

Houston, USA, 30 May 2018 - CEVA Global Logistics, LLC (CEVA) and IMS Worldwide,
Inc. (IMSW) have announced that they have entered into a Strategic Alliance to
offer the benefits of Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) services to customers in the USA.

The partnership's focus is the development of a sophisticated Zone Managed
Services offering that is rooted in compliance, efficiency and experience. Based
on an in-depth analysis of the customers' supply chains, CEVA and IMSW can offer
to integrate certain activities into FTZ environments and therefore achieve
improved efficiency and substantial savings in terms of duties or import fee
reductions as well as cash flow improvements through reductions in working

The combined collaborative alliance with CEVA and IMSW, a leader in the FTZ
consulting and operations in the US, allows CEVA to enhance, grow and expand
their current FTZ offerings to all of their Ocean and Air gateways in North
America as well as utilize their extensive Contract Logistics expertise and
footprint to offer further benefits to their customers within the FTZ.

Jerome Lorrain, CEVA's Chief Operating Officer for Global Freight Management,
announcing the alliance said: "Our continuing effort to streamline our
customers' supply chains, squeezing every bit of costs out of the logistics
process, is greatly aided by this alliance with IMSW, which is considered one of
the top FTZ experts in the country. We have worked with them for over 12 years
now, and a stronger, more integrated approach is going to be a great addition to
our import and contract logistics operations."

Trey Boring, Senior Vice President of IMSW, and past Chairman of the NAFTZ
Association, which represents the FTZ industry commented: "We are excited about
this Alliance as IMSW has been looking for the right partner to grow our current
Managed Services business, and CEVA has great reach into Asia, Europe, North
America and Latin America. Together we feel this combination is second to none
in the industry."

In addition to offering FTZ services, CEVA's Strategic partnership with IMSW
allows this Alliance to offer cutting edge e-commerce solutions and further
expand the footprint in air cargo forwarding.

particularly at large gateway points such as Houston, Los Angeles, Miami,
Dallas, Chicago, Phoenix, El Paso and New Jersey, etc. An FTZ allows federal
taxes and fees to be lowered, eliminated or even exempted from payment.
