As part of its global distribution and logistics footprint development, Metso is initiating consultations to evaluate the potential centralization of its warehousing operations in Europe.
“Our target is to enable world-class logistics with easy scalability of operations. Flexible, state-of-the-art warehouse operations would allow orders to be collected and dispatched to customers directly from central warehouses. It would also enable considerable savings in end-to-end freight costs and reduced CO2 emissions,” says Jarkko Aro, SVP for customer logistics at Metso.
During the consultations, Metso will evaluate the different options related to the continuation of its current warehouse operations in nine locations in Norway, Sweden, the UK, France, Spain, Czech Republic, Turkey, and Russia. The consultations affect approximately 40 employees and are related only to the warehouse operations.
