DB Schenker and Veikkaus ink contract logistics pact
The Finnish national lottery company Veikkaus has chosen DB Schenker as its logistics services provider in Finland. Veikkaus was won over by the service provider’s solution, which is based on a distribution centre near Helsinki.
The challenge was to consolidate Veikkaus warehousing activities from two locations in Finland at DB Schenker’s new Avia distribution centre (DC) in Vantaa, to establish a service centre for maintenance.
DB Schenker’s solution provides storage for finished goods and distribution of 230'000 parcels a year, for a total of some 160'000 shipments, with a guaranteed delivery to around 7000 Veikkaus stores within 24 hours.
The DC, offering 20'000 sqm for logistics activities and 31,000 pallet slots, is next to DB Schenker’s headquarters in Finland and conveniently located just a few kilometres from Vantaa international airport. (mw)
