18 Jun 2020 3 questions about Elons logistics solution Hi Markus Luthman, Logistics Development, Elon. Can you tell us about your new sustainable terminal setup in Finland?— Yes! We will use three DB Schenker-terminals. Turku, Tampere and Helsinki. We will also do some direct delivery of larger shipments directly to Vantaa.Why is this arrangement sustainable?— Because we will distribute the goods trough three terminals instead of one. Transports from Sweden to Finland, with a high load degree, linehaul will geographically move closer to the final destination. This allows us to shorten the distribution and reduce the number of shipments.Biggest advantages and disadvantages?— We see three advantages: shorter lead times. Better quality thanks to less terminal handling. Lower costs, thanks to high load degree that reaches a larger geographical area and thus shorter distribution. One disadvantage may be that a critical mass, in terms of volume, is required in order to utilize the potential. Either from a specific customer - or if DB Schenker has more customers in the same area which together can create a similar arrangement.
