Metso has started consultations to evaluate the centralisation of its European warehousing operations.
During the consultations, the Finnish aggregates equipment and services company says it 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.
“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," said Jarkko Aro, SVP for customer logistics at Metso.
"It would also enable considerable savings in end-to-end freight costs and reduced CO2 emissions."
