Helping Harvestia to modernise its wood supply system and build an ecosystem connecting the different actors in wood and supply field to bring in better efficiency in its operations.
Head of Wood and Fibre Solutions
“We are modernising the wood supply system with the aim of improving the steering of wood and fibre deliveries to our customers and increasing the effectiveness of hauling operations with our transportation partners,” says Pekka Kauranen, CEO of Harvestia.
Harvestia wanted to upgrade its existing wood and fibre system and create better efficiency in the related environment. The module was to be integrated to make sure that all the actors in the wood and fibre supply field are brought together in one ecosystem. They wanted advanced, efficient steering of wood supply operations and to enhance the usability and user experience of applications.
As a part of the renewal, Tieto helped Harvestia modernise the existing tools and also added the Tieto Integrated Fibre Flow (TIFF) module for fibre demand and logistics planning. The module was integrated with Trimble’s LogForce service which would enable operational and vehicle level planning. It would also help in the steering of the wood transportation operations.
Harvestia Oy is Powerflute PLC’s wood procurement company. They actively purchase birch fibre for use by Savon Sellu in Kuopio and also procure wood for their partners. Their wood procurement focuses on North Savo, South Savo and Southeast Finland.
