Global integrated logistics and materials management company, ASCO, has been awarded a 3-year contract extension in Norway with Aker BP to supply integrated supply base services, transport and freight forwarding, with a focus on streamlining processes through digitalisation.

The framework agreement has a potential total value of NOK 750m (£64m) and includes the delivery of services within warehouse management, CCU deliveries, waste services, personnel hire within operations and helicopter coordination.

ASCO is an international logistics company, serving the energy industry, with headquarters in Aberdeen. ASCO established their Norwegian operations in 1994 and in addition to the main base in Tananger, the company operates bases in Farsund, Kristiansund, Sandnessjøen and Hammerfest.

Øyvind Salte, Commercial Director of ASCO Norway, said "Being the preferred supplier in logistics for Aker BP for another 3 years is very important to us. We look forward to further developing ourselves as a company and are proud to be a supplier to Aker BP. The contract strengthens our existing activity in Norway, and forms the basis for a further development of our good cooperation with Aker BP. In addition, further work is being done on processes for an optimization and digitalisation of our total logistics delivery. During the year, ASCO will roll out a new IT solution at all its Norwegian supply bases. The goal is to make the ports more efficient whilst reducing their environmental footprint. This will give Aker BP a financial and environmental saving on its total logistics costs."
