11/05/2015 /  UAB Juodeliai delivers its products to Europe not only by land, but also by sea

With the growing capacity of UAB Juodeliai wood processing company, the volume of its products is increasing, the number of customers is growing and the production sales market is expanding. It is important for the company to find an alternative to land transport, which is currently used for the transportation of the majority of production. As of April this year, UAB Juodeliai began to deliver its products by sea – in containers and fully loaded ships.

This process might be well familiar for other companies, but it was a new experience for UAB Juodeliai, forced to look for new solutions outside the usual manufacturing process. In April, the ship carried more than 2,500 m3 of wood representing about 13 percent of monthly production capacity of the company. The company has changed packaging specifications and invested in additional fastening materials so that products can reach the destination in stable packages. There is still room for improvement, but the company already provides further steps for correcting some errors. We hope that this process becomes permanent.

UAB Juodeliai appreciates that its clients and partners are willing to cooperate in organizing the delivery of production, searching for alternatives and seeking mutual benefits.

15/11/2011 /  Effective teamwork-training courses

On a sunny October 2011 weekend, the staff of UAB Juodeliai participated in training courses on the subject: “How to transform the staff into an effective operating team“. The objectives of the training courses were: to bring three subunits of the company’s staff together, to clarify the concept of effective teamwork, to provide practical skills in teamwork and team decision-making, as well as to help conceive the team’s own contribution within the activities of the organization. The participants were attempting to discover more-efficient ways of how to delegate tasks to others, and how to remain motivated in stressful situations. During practical tasks, the employees of UAB Juodeliai have learnt how to allocate responsibilities among the team members in the process of teamwork task-implementation. Disputes arising during certain task performances gave an excellent opportunity to try to deal with the current situations — not only theoretically, but also practically.

The two-days training courses gave each member of UAB Juodeliai an opportunity to acquire superior knowledge, which helps to perform daily work activities more effectively. Teamwork-training activities brought the team members together, as well as helped them to better understand each other.
