Lindström and Itella Logistics have signed a five-year agreement on logistics cooperation.
The agreement covers the warehousing of Lindström's products, domestic and foreign transport, customs clearance and forwarding services as well as logistics development as a comprehensive service. As of October 2010, the warehousing of Lindström's textile products will be centralized to the Itella logistics center in Pennala, Orimattila.
"The objective of this change is to have a continuously developing partnership which will provide us with efficiency and a more fluent overall process than before," says Juha Laurio, President and CEO of Lindström.
"We are happy with the new cooperation agreement. Itella Logistics is one of the leading logistics service providers in the Nordic countries and Russia. We are capable of providing our customers with a comprehensive, high-quality logistics service. We ensure that our service meets the requirements of the customer's business in an optimal way," says Jarmo Halonen, country director at Itella Logistics Finland.
