Metso looks at centralizing European warehouse operations

Metso is starting consultations to evaluate the potential centralization of its warehousing operations in Europe.

During the consultations, Metso will evaluate options for 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.

“Our target is to enable world-class logistics with easy scalability of operations,” said Jarkko Aro, SVP for Customer Logistics at Metso. “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.”
