Johan Wallin: ”Cross-border logistics between EU and Russia – The flow of goods between Murmansk-Finland-Sweden with focus on the logistical interfaces in a supply chain”

Sallan moderni, uusi rajavasema. Raja avattiin kansainväliselle liikenteelle vuonna 2002. Viime vuosina liikennemäärät ovat kasvaneet runsaasti ja mm. venäläisten matkailijoiden tulo rajan kautta Suomeen näkyy Pohjois-Suomen taloudellisissa keskuksissa. Kuva on otettu Barents Logisti 2 matkalta huhtikuussa 2013.

Salla border station is modern and efficient. The border was opened to international traffic in 2002. Barents Logistic 2 project organized trip to Murmansk region in April 2013.  Photo  April 2013, Yrjö Myllylä.

Cross-border logistics between EU and Russia : The flow of goods between Murmansk-Finland-Sweden with focus on the logistical interfaces in a supply chain

From Abstract:

”The study provides a mapping and description of the flow of goods by road transportation across the two northernmost border crossings of Finland towards Russia, and a unique overall view is presented of the cross-boundary logistics in this region.

Rather than having a focus on grand-scale need for investments in infrastructure, this study aims to highlight the present situation in the Barents region and what is feasible to achieve with existing infrastructure and resources. The study has been executed since the potential for trade and cooperation between the countries in the region is perceived to be far greater than what is currently experienced. It should be noted that the total population of the Barents region is about 5.5 million. Of these, about 788 000 people live in the Murmansk region. This can for instance be compared with the population of the counties of Norrbotten and Västerbotten, amounting to around 248 000 and 260 000 respectively.”

”Enhanced logistics services would facilitate supply chain solutions across the national borders in the Barents region, and the Murmansk area appears to be relatively unexploited by west European companies. As a result of globalization, the general importance of effective Supply Chain Management is increasing for businesses. Accordingly, global sourcing has become part of the purchasing strategy for many companies. Still, there are challenges connected to global sourcing but these can be mitigated if the geographical distance is reduced between the supplier and the customer. For instance, this would be the case if a Nordic company locates some of its production to the Murmansk region instead of placing it in Asia.”

”This study has been made during the first half of year 2013 as a part of the Barents Logistics 2 project.”
