Stora Enso’s logistics services are carried out by contracted suppliers, e.g. road hauliers, rail and shipping companies, terminals and port operators. We select and cooperate with competitive, sustainable suppliers providing partnerships for innovation.
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, Sustainability Requirements for Logistics Services. Logistics Administration Manual, and our Cargo Handling and Securing Manual (including checklists for all transport modes).
Stora Enso uses a standardised set-up for the sourcing of logistics services. This covers the entire procurement process from RFIs, approvals, RFQs, evaluations & agreements to service execution monitoring 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 guidelines for our approved suppliers and access to procurement information.
Send our supplier contact an email and we will return with an RFI for further assessment of a potential collaboration.
