The collaboration between Nurminen Logistics and SSAB has extended significantly in recent years. Small-scale collaboration started already in 2010. Nurminen handles the containerisation of the SSAB’s steel coils in the Vuosaari terminal. In addition to the steel coils, Nurminen has also containerised small amounts of SSAB’s steel sheets and tubes as well as handled the delivery of SSAB’s sample batches around the world in cooperation with the LCL operator Nordicon.

According to the client

We have been pleased with our cooperation with Nurminen Logistics. It is a significant advantage that the Nurminen Vuosaari terminal is located right next to the harbour. The containers can be easily accessed and Nurminen has been able to handle growing volumes according to schedules and our quality standards.

According to Nurminen

SSAB trusts in the Nurminen’s strong quality in handling steel products. Planning the containerisation and the secured supporting of the coils at sea are the prerequisites in minimising the damages and reclamations.
