Our project logistics division is well known for its tailor-made approach to every client’s logistics needs. We pride ourselves in offering project logistics solutions that serve our customers to their highest expectations.
Cimcorp has been a customer whose needs have truly tested our abilities as a project logistics service provider. Coordinating their demanding global shipments is a task that has challenged even our most senior logistics coordinators. We appreciate the trust Cimcorp has given to our team as the companies have deepened in their cooperation.
Here´s what Cimcorps Export Manager Paula Junnila-Erkintalo had to say about the services Wiima has provided for Cimcorp during the past year:
“During the year, Wiima has handled Cimcorp’s project deliveries to our distribution centres in Lauenau, Germany, Freienbrink and Erharting, by road freight and North American bakery and tire customers as sea container deliveries.
The German road freight projects had multiple loading locations: in Finland, the EU and Turkey. The number of trucks ranged from 20 to 30 per project. Some of the loads were oversized, and in some cases, the lengthy loading times required flexibility from Wiimas side.
Some of the projects have been very schedule-critical, especially when considering the sometimes very limited unloading timeframes. Wiima has always found a solution to all of these challenges. Wiima understands the nature of project deliveries and has been in active contact with the various loading locations and unloading sites. Special thanks have come from our site manager, whose installation work has been easier due to this proactive communication style.
Wiima has also handled Cimorp’s US sea freight projects e.g. To Pennsylvania and Arkansas. The shortage of containers has posed its own challenges, but Wiima has been actively seeking a solution and offering different shipping schedules and price options. For example, in the case of 45HC containers, new solutions had to be innovated. Those shipments were transported to Central Europe for containerization. The project consisted of loading locations in Finland and the Czech Republic. The project size was about 15-20 containers (40HC, 40OT, 45HC). Container inland deliveries have also gone very smoothly in the US.
All in all, we at Cimcorp have been really satisfied with the services provided by Wiima in terms of functionality, solution focus and price. Wiima will continue to be a noteworthy logistics and forwarding partner for us. We also appreciate their work to support our sales with freight rates and various other logistics related tasks.”
