Finland Post and TietoEnator offer joint logistics services

Finland Post and TietoEnator offer joint logistics services Finland Post Ltd and TietoEnator Corporation have signed a co-operation agreement under which they will offer services for improving efficiency in logistics operations and related IT activities, primarily to the public sector and especially municipal and health care customers. The aim is to provide customers with more comprehensive services for improving their logistics operations. This co-operation will strengthen the competitive position of the two companies in the logistics market. Corporate logistics operations are increasingly managed and controlled by means of IT systems. As a result, streamlining the physical logistic processes will not alone produce the desired effect if the related IT systems are not upgraded simultaneously. By taking action on both fronts, it is possible to achieve improvements more efficiently than before. The services to be provided by the two partners are offered as packages of varying scope ranging from consultation to outsourcing. Finland Post Ltd is the largest logistics service provider in Finland, offering corporate customers contract-based services that may consist of performing certain individual internal or external logistic tasks, consultation related to logistics processes, or outsourcing of entire logistics functions. TietoEnator's contribution to this co-operation is the provision of a full range of IT services from industry specific expertise and IT consultation to integration and implementation projects, application services, processing and network management.
