Esa Kuokka Oy – From wholesale distribution to service concepts in food logistics
Esa Kuokka Oy was established in 1993. It was set up on the sturdy foundation of the former Oy Albert Norrgård Ab. The operations were immediately directed towards the horeca distribution. At first, the idea was to make nationwide frozen deliveries, however, soon chilled deliveries were added to the service also.
From the start, effective networking has been the guiding principle.
Together with regional distributors Esa Kuokka Oy created a strong delivery network for low flow of goods. At the time this kind of thinking was quite progressive, and clearly needed.
2008 was a turning point. That is when delivery agency Esa Kuokka Oy became a full-fledged transport company. The number of employees grew and the company invested in its own delivery vehicles.
At the beginning of 2010 the deregulation of retail hours brought the food industry new challenges – and possibilities. Esa Kuokka Oy grabbed these possibilities and started to develop its business, organisation and technology with determination and a comprehensive vision.
