In 2015, NTEX established its first own terminal in Norway. Since then, the business has expanded greatly, with a doubling of the number of employees and a terminal and warehousing operations that has grown from 3 500 to 10 000 square meters. In order to meet this increased demand, operations must now be further broadened.
NTEX's operations in Norway previously took the help of subcontractors through so-called third-party logistics to manage the terminal and warehouse operations. In 2015, NTEX established its own operations in Vinterbro, just south of Oslo, and was thus able to operate the goods handling under their own control. At that time, there were 20 employees and a terminal with a capacity of 3 500 square meters. In September 2017, the operations outgrew the premises in Vinterbro and moved to Sofiemyr.
– We have expanded every year, and today we have around 40 people working at NTEX in Norway. In 2018 alone, we made a total of 130 000 transactions, which is twice as many as the year before, says Andreas Nikolic, Managing Director at NTEX in Norway.
A large part of NTEX's work in Norway revolves around third-party logistics and international freight forwarding to and from Sweden, England and Italy. The operations in Sofiemyr have a storage capacity of over 10 000 square meters and can accommodate up to 12 000 pallet locations. In order to meet the increased need, the business must now be broadened even more.
– As third-party operators, we provide storage and transport solutions for other operators. Our goal is to offer and deliver full service to our customers with everything from inquiry and stock to delivery. We are meeting an increase in demand and therefore we now have plans to expand our operations in Norway, Andreas concludes.
