Sodra to Coordinate Productivity, Purchasing and Logistics

Aug. 31, 2011 (Press Release) - Sodra is creating a new unit for the group functions of purchasing, productivity and logistics. A new Sodra-wide logistics function, Sodra Logistics, is being formed with a view to guaranteeing added value from logistics across the entire Södra group.

Oskar Karlsson will take over as the new Director of Purchasing as of 15 September, and recruitment of a Head of Logistics is set to commence immediately. There will be no changes in productivity. The heads of the three areas Purchasing, Logistics and Productivity will be reporting to Beatrice Kampe Nikolausson, who will be the Director of the new collective unit.

More in-depth charting of existing logistics operations will take place over the autumn, befre the future organisational structure for Sodra Logistics is decided upon. Staff will be allocated to the new function in the spring of 2012. Operational responsibility for call-offs, receiving and loading will remain with the relevant business areas.
