Nordicon and Nurminen Logistics started cooperation in terminal operations
Nordicon wants to offer its customers better service by developing electronic data transfer.
Break-bulk cargo operator Nordicon changed its terminal operator in Finland at the beginning of January and started cooperation with Nurminen Logistics at the Vuosaari terminal. As part of the operator change, a major electronic integration was implemented between the information systems of Nordicon and Nurminen and the flow of information was automated.
– For us, the requirements of electronic data transfer was the most important criterion for launching the terminal operator change. Nurminen was interested in entering a project of this kind and we ended up collaborating with them. Our operations also require being located in the port. Our company has implemented a corresponding integration in Sweden. However, the demands of the project surprised us in terms of the large amount of time and different phases that it required. Nurminen carried out all of its responsibilities superbly. I am really pleased that the project was managed by Nurminen. After the integration, operations have started out well, although there is always the need for minor adjustments in changes like this, says manager Tommi Antikainen from Nordicon.
– Having Nordicon as our customer is important for us in many ways. Cargo handling volumes in our Vuosaari flow-through terminal will increase considerably. In addition, the electronic integration now implemented is a pilot project in our terminal system. The project has taught us a lot and cooperation with Nordicon has been fluent. Data must flow in logistics as fast as goods. With the integration of our data systems, we can minimise any delays in the flow of information, says manager Mike Karjagin, who is responsible for Nurminen Logistics’ Forwarding business line.
