DB Schenker Logistics to provide services to Neste Oil
Berlin/Frankfurt - DB Schenker in Finland has been awarded a storage and distribution contract from Neste Oil, a refining and marketing company focused on low-emission, high-quality traffic fuels.
DB Schenker will store roughly 5,000 pallets of lubrication oils, greases, car care and household chemicals at its new 25,000 square meter multi-customer warehouse located in Nurmijärvi, Finland. The facility will be TAPA A-certified and will offer various storage conditions, fulfilling Neste Oil’s strict safety requirements for chemicals storage, as well as those of regulatory authorities. At its Nurmijärvi facility, DB Schenker provides selected warehousing areas for different products all in one location. These include an unheated area for lubricants which do not need temperature control, an ambient temperature area for unclassified products as well as a certified area for products that are highly flammable, corrosive or irritant and need to be stored under special supervision.
Along with warehousing, DB Schenker will also offer value-added services such as labeling, re-/co-packing and sampling, as well as domestic distribution in Finland and international distribution. Neste Oil’s products are exported mainly to Russia and Ukraine. For these eastbound exports, DB Schenker will produce the needed export documents electronically in cooperation with Neste Oil on the customer’s extranet.
DB Schenker has also previously signed a contract with Neste Oil Russia in St. Petersburg to warehouse all of Neste Oil’s own packed products imported for Neste Oil’s local retail stations.
“We wanted a reliable, environmentally-conscious, safe company to support us in growing our businesses in selected markets. DB Schenker is now part of our operations in our two key markets. We believe our journey together has only just begun and that our cooperation will deepen and expand as time goes on. DB Schenker’s ability to operate across borders with a powerful IT-system supporting it, is crucial to us,” says Tero Järvinen, Head of Lubricants and Packed Products Business at Neste Oil.
“We are very proud to have been selected as the service provider for Neste Oil. It is our joint strategy to contribute to environmental sustainability and reducing CO2 emission both in warehousing and transportation. This cooperation is an example of our commitment to keeping our promise,” says Katri Kostiainen, Logistics Director at DB Schenker in Finland.
