Itella Logistics provides its customers with the full range of logistics services and solutions. Our transport services cover domestic and international freight. In addition, we offer warehousing and additional services, forwarding services and information systems that ensure efficient and transparent logistics.

The market situation continued to be challenging for Itella Logistics throughout the year. The uncertain market was reflected in our customers’ operations in the form of postponed purchases, slow inventory turnover and smaller shipments in processing. Of our countries of operation, our result developed favorably in Russia, which is our main market in addition to Finland.

We carried out profitability measures at Itella Logistics as part of Itella’s performance improvement program in 2013. We will continue to improve cost-efficiency, increase net sales and develop our operating methods in 2014.

Major projects in 2013 included the construction of the Pennala logistics center in Orimattila. Completed at the beginning of June, the new warehouse offers more than 70,000 square meters of warehouse space for the customers of Itella Logistics. In total, the old and new warehouse offer more than 100,000 square meters of warehouse space. The new logistics center is intended for warehousing home improvement products, clothes and domestic appliances as well as materials and articles classified as dangerous (ADR).

We have paid particular attention to energy and environmental issues. The logistics center has energy-saving external wall panels and a hybrid heating system that uses ground heat and gas. Its location in the middle of our customer network also improves efficiency.

We continued the extensive integration of the groupage logistics business operations acquired in 2012. We combined our terminal operations in 12 locations in different parts of Finland.
