Wärtsilä’s new Logistics Centre in Vaasa has been awarded the 2022 Internal Logistics award (Sisälogistiikkapalkinto) by the Finnish Association of Purchasing and Logistics LOGY.
Wärtsilä’s logistics operations moved to the new Logistics Centre in 2022, which is part of the Sustainable Technology Hub, a centre of research, product development and production in Vaasa.
With the new Logistics Centre, Wärtsilä moved from multiple locations to a centralised, efficient, and modernised internal logistics. Internal logistics covers the transport and information flow within Wärtsilä. The investment provides Wärtsilä with good opportunities for continuous improvement also in the future.
The award was given on 9 February 2023 at the annual LOGY Conference in Helsinki. The aim of the award is to promote the development of domestic internal logistics.
