LOGISTICS OUTSOURCING ENABLED LUMENE TO CONCENTRATE IN THEIR CORE BUSINESS
LEADER IN FINNISH COSMETICS
Lumene Oy is a Finnish cosmetics and skincare company that offers high–quality, natural products. Founded in 1971, Lumene strives to promote the beauty of Nordic nature through its innovative, natural–based products. From its beginnings as an independent family business, Lumene has grown to become one of Finland‘s leading cosmetics and skincare companies. Lumene‘s products are sold in more than 40 countries worldwide, with an emphasis on natural, sustainable beauty solutions.
THE STARTING POINT
Lumene was handling all freight management tasks by themselves. All freights were given to very limited pool of logistics service providers (LSP’s) and internal organization spent a lot of working hours for managing the freights.
Cooperation with Lumene has started in 2014. Wiima has provided savings in Lumene’s Inbound and Outbound freight pricing with active and comprehensive tendering. Transportations include regular tradelanes to US and within Europe. Lumene has gained measurable savings in own resources by giving all freight management tasks to Wiima Logistics including tendering, follow up, reporting, consolidated invoicing, optimizing, claim handling and communicating with Vendors/Customers regarding collection and delivery details. All freight assignments are being handled with open book method (complete transparency).
To prove the results of the cooperation between Lumene and Wiima Logistics, we can compare the cost of freight management tasks (including tendering, follow up, reporting, consolidated invoicing, optimizing, claim handling and communicating with Vendors/Customers) before and after the cooperation. We can also compare the amount of working hours spent by Lumene on freight management tasks before and after the cooperation. This will allow us to quantify the savings achieved by Lumene through the cooperation.
“I can confidently say that our cooperation with Wiima Logistics has been a great success. We have achieved measurable savings in our resources and seen a significant reduction in our freight management tasks. Wiima Logistics has been extremely reliable and professional in their services and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a comprehensive logistics outsourcing solutions”

In order to setup internal logistics development project to streamline in-house logistics processes, Ponsse hired Wiima Logistics to execute a comprehensive logistics survey.
Cooperation with ALMACO’s office located in Turku, Finland started in 2010. Since then, Wiima has handled all air/sea/land freights (import/export/cross trade) for this ALMACO Group location.
Wiima has primarily consulted Enics with putting out tenders for couriers as they send out electronic component shipments across the globe. Since there can be dozens of shipments per week, using the most cost-efficient courier quickly adds up to significant savings.
