Stora Enso carries out transports and other logistics services using contracted suppliers, e.g. road hauliers, rail and shipping companies, terminals and port operators. We select and cooperate with competitive suppliers willing to innovate. Our mission is to create value for Stora Enso by rethinking the supply chain.
The terms of cooperation between Stora Enso and its logistics service providers are outlined in frame agreements covering the supplier’s general undertakings, transport documents, care of goods and damage claims, insurance etc. The frame agreements also outline liabilities and the contractual terms in detail.
In addition, suppliers are required to comply with Stora Enso’s Supplier Code of Conduct, Cargo Handling and Securing Manual, Logistics Administration Manual and Sustainability Requirements for Logistics Services,
Standardised procurement process
Stora Enso uses a standardised set-up for the procurement of logistics services. This covers the entire procurement process - RFIs, approvals, RFQs, evaluations, agreements and follow-up.
The collaboration with most contracted logistics suppliers is managed using a web-based procurement portal at www.carrierpoint.com
. Suppliers of global container services use a similar portal at www.storaenso.com/tender
. These tools provide access to procurement information and guidelines for our approved suppliers.
