Long term development with tight cooperation
One exciting collaboration between ABB Drives Service in Vantaa and HUB logistics services is an internal logistics project of receiving spare parts, including stocking, packing and dispatching. Previously, ABB Drives Services has engaged multiple partners in support of their logistics functions, however, their goal was to develop their functions by focusing on having only one service provider. “We wanted one partner, whose professional logistics organizational skills could effectively optimize our daily logistics routines,” explains Carita Nybergh, ABB Drives Services logistics manager.
HUB logistics has continued to be one of ABB’s partners for a number of years and from ABB‘s point of view, it is HUB logistics which has the qualifications to develop and intensify functions and provide services much more effectively on a day-to-day level rather than through a separate development project, due to their development specialists. “Our co-operation has been tight since 2008. Stability and a trust for continuousness in the co-operation is exactly the criteria we were after, and it has been realized,” continues Nybergh. ABB views HUB’s expertise and flexibility in various areas of business as their strength. In addition, ABB believes that HUB logistics is committed to developing functions together as a team as well as taking responsibility independently to complete special projects, as they have a great understanding of customer processes and needs. In addition, ABB realized that HUB optimizes resources in changing situations, which is yet another one of HUB’s strength.
