Metsä Board has concluded a logistics agreement with Kuljetusliike Kalevi Huhtala Oy for transport between the Kemi board mill and Ajos harbour, in Kemi. All exports from the Kemi board mill will be centralised in Ajos.

"Efficient export logistics is a key factor in paperboard production. We require efficient and low-emission solutions from our chosen partners in logistics," says Timo Ahonen, VP, Kemi Board mill.

The signed agreement is a continuation of an agreement signed earlier by Metsä Group for the transportation of products from the bioproduct mill under construction in Kemi, and has a part in ensuring efficient and environmentally friendly logistics solutions between Metsä Group's Kemi integrated mill and the Ajos harbour. Transport under the contract will start on 1.4.2023.

Metsä Board Kemi mill has a capacity of 425,000 tonnes of high-quality white kraftliner per year. A development programme is underway to increase the mill's production capacity by 40 000 tonnes to 465 000 tonnes per year. At the same time, significant improvements will be made in the mill's water and energy consumption.
