Nurminen Logistics has provided M-real with services at its many locations for several years.

Metsä Board

Metsä Board is best known as the market leader in Europe for lightweight bending chip, but its products are also widely sold all around the world. Because its bending chip production facilities are located in Finland, supply chain management is an important part of Metsä Board’s business operations. Nurminen Logistics has indeed provided Metsä Board with services at its many locations for several years, but cooperation with the Vuosaari logistics centre sprang into action in 2011. At Vuosaari Nurminen provides intermediate storage and containerisation services for Metsä Board carton travelling by ship all over the world. Metsä Board’s products reach the logistics centre mainly by train, but road transport is used as well. Nurminen stores the products at railway terminals for the time period required by the customer, and subsequently containerises them so they can be loaded on the ship.

According to the client

Before we started using Nurminen Logistics’ services in Vuosaari we charted out the situation thoroughly: our options included all Finnish harbours and a couple of inland containerisation locations. There were two reasons we chose Vuosaari and Nurminen Logistics: the availability of containers and the price of the services. Furthermore, other factors in favour of Nurminen Logistics were previous experience and our trust in them. Nurminen has also proven to be worthy of our trust. Work has been organised well at the Vuosaari logistics centre, and the entire personnel see to it that matters requiring attention are dealt with in a reliable manner through to the end, regardless of their level in the organisation.

According to Nurminen

We strive to serve Metsä Board with as much flexibility as possible according to their needs, whatever they may be at any given time. The railway terminal at our Vuosaari logistics centre, wiath its blind track, is a perfect match for precisely this type of client, so the services can be carried out effortlessly thanks to our terminal and skilled personnel.
