SCA opens Kiel terminal

November 11 - SCA Logistics has inaugurated its new terminal at the Port of Kiel's Ostuferhafen.

SCA Logistics will use the new forest products and logistics centre to handle and store 850,000 tonnes of high-value paper products per year, which will be distributed throughout Central and Western Europe.

The EUR25 million (USD27.1 million) facility was built over the course of one year and occupies a 16 ha site.

The forest products centre comprises the No. 1 and No. 2 warehouses, both of which measure some 10,000 sq m, and Number 5 Shed which, with its ground floor area of 18,000 sq m, is one of the biggest warehouses in Kiel.

The overhauled Shed 8, which measures 7,000 sq m, will be used for transport cassettes and was erected to give direct access to the ship berth and offer maximum weather protection during unloading.

SCA's vessels Obbola, Ortviken and Östrand have called at Ostuferhafen from Sundsvall every Monday and Saturday in rotation since the start of October to unload up to 160 cassettes of paper. On their return trip to the Swedish east coast the SCA ships can carry different types of cargo, such as vehicles, breakbulk, steel or recycling materials.
