Case study: Forest Industries

Road in the forest

Challenge

A player within the forest industries needed to find a reliable transport provider with local knowledge and the capacity to collect their forest products from several factories located throughout Norway. They needed someone who could manage their large export volumes in challenging terrain that had previously caused delays in their deliveries. They also needed a transport partner with frequency and linehaul routing fitting their outbound volumes.

The ideal supplier should be timely and professional in fulfilling their pick-up and delivery times. Also, the haulier should have local knowledge and experience with dealing with the challenging Norwegian roads.

Solution

DFDS created a customised solution with the ability to handle the client’s need to move large volumes. The solution combines punctual road transport based on the West Gateway Brevik and the East Gateway Gothenburg, with a frequency meeting their demands for their forest products to reach mainland Europe and UK.

All transports are based on high quality hauliers who have equipment suitable for Norwegian roads, local knowledge and who speak the local language. The hauliers use Standard Triple axel CS Tautliners with triple axel pulling units 6x2, meeting the client’s demand for both loading and road security.

Results

The client is very satisfied with the solution and service we provide. The solution secures that goods are delivered to their customers’ satisfaction, without delays or damages. Flexible opening hours at the factories are beneficial to both parties and the DFDS RoRo Door-Door solution gives the agents in Europe time to finalise sales during transit time.
