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).
