Metsä Board is Europe’s leading producer of folding boxboard and white fresh fibre linerboard. Recently, a very modern folding boxboard machine was built at the integrated board and pulp mill in Husum. An important investment in a new manufacturing process was underway at the Husum board mill.
The objective was to find optimal methods of utilising the manufacturing process and transport logistics. At the same time, the effects of production planning and the changes in product distribution on the loading of processes and storage facilities were investigated.
