This is HUB
The story of HUB Logistics begins in 1992, at a time when quality systems first arrived in Finland. HUB’s current Chairman of the Board, Aarno Törmälä, founded the company with the hope of offering education and consultation on quality systems to various logistics service companies.
With Finland recovering from a recession at the time, the idea of developing externalized logistics services and taking overall responsibility for internal logistics for service companies was unheard of. It was this idea of quality systems which then spread to company processes and services that ended up creating a clear view on how the logistics service could be developed in Finland.
Fitting perfectly with the service idea in which the service provider offers a focused solution and where its purpose is to be the logistic centre of the material flow, information management and capital, the word HUB was added to the company name in 1997.
Due to customer demand in the year 2000, HUB began producing logistics services – starting from forwarding, trade and industrial sectors. In the beginning of that same year there was an exciting demand for the development of industrial sector logistics and outsourcing. Ultimately, the name and logo for HUB logistics became a unified brand for subsidiaries and the development of services became more technology centred as best practices were in demand throughout the world.
