Big Belarus move for Nurminen

September 2 - Nurminen Logistics will handle the transport of all the machinery required for a new pulp mill being built by mechanical group, Andritz, in Svetlogorsk, Belarus.

With a logistics value of more than EUR2 million (USD2.64 million) and a project delivery consisting of more than 450 loads, this is the largest project in Belarus to be carried out by a Finnish logistics company thus far, says Nurminen.

Consignments to Svetlogorsk are loaded in approximately 30 locations around the world, mainly in Finland, Sweden, Hungary and Austria, with the most distant loading locations in the USA. Transport routes have been optimised and goods travel to Belarus mainly via different Nurminen Logistics offices in Finland and the Baltic countries.

Shipments for the project have already started and will continue until mid-2014.

Nurminen Logistics is a member of the Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) network in Finland.
