Nurminen Logistics will carry out the overall machinery delivery to Svetlogorsk, Belarus for the pulp mill of the mechanical engineering group Andritz. The value of logistics in this large project is more than EUR 2 million. The project delivery consists of more than 450 loads, approximately one third of which are special transports. In addition to transport, the Svetlogorsk delivery includes the overall management of transport logistics in the project. Transports for the project have already started and will continue until mid-2014.
During the past few years, Belarus has invested in industry and infrastructure development and the country’s attractiveness as an investment target has increased. Nurminen Logistics’ project delivery is the largest project in Belarus carried out by a Finnish logistics company this far.
Hannu Vuorinen, Senior Vice President, Special Transports and Projects at Nurminen Logistics, says: –The selection of Nurminen Logistics as the logistics partner for the Svetlogorsk projects is yet another testimony of our ability to deliver demanding project entities to our internationally operating customers. Belarus is a familiar operating area for us: we have delivered large-scale special transports there before via the ports in the Baltic countries, for instance. Efficient management of the entire process from load planning to reporting generates both efficiency in deliveries themselves and cost savings for our customers as load sizes and consignments can be optimised in the best possible manner. The Svetlogorsk project requires exactly the type of special expertise in which Nurminen Logistics is at its best.
Consignments to Svetlogorsk are loaded in approximately 30 locations around the world, mainly in Finland, Sweden, Hungary and Austria. Smaller consignments are dispatched from several other European countries, too. The most distant loading locations are in the USA. Transport routes have been optimised and goods travel to Belarus mainly via different Nurminen Logistics’ offices in Finland and the Baltic countries.
