Yilport Nordicsigns long term logistics agreement with Stora Enso
Starting January 2018 Yilport Nordic will handle the entire output from Stora Enso´s papermill in Skutskär, close to Gävle. The contract value is in the range of 15-20 million USD, and include warehouse management and logistic services to handle 530.000 ton of pulp per year. To run the 24/7 operation Yilport will hire 20-25 new staff.
One of the benefits to the customer is the possible sharing of resources with the Yilport terminals in nearby Gävle where warehouses, staff and equipment can be used.
“With the Stora Enso agreement and our newly established business area Logistics we have a unique offer that may lead to further growth in the segment mill side logistics,” says YILPORT Nordics sales director Håkan Bergström.
Stora Enso is a leading global provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper. Stora Enso, with some 25 000 employees is one of the largest companies in the Nordic countries.
