The Port of Turku has become Finland’s leading distribution centre for cargo traffic to and from Scandinavia.

Turku is Finland’s hub for Scandinavian transport

The Port of Turku is the center of Scandinavian transport from Finland and one of the country’s most important logistics hubs.

The main direction for traffic from the port is Stockholm, with several departures daily. In addition to the Scandinavian countries, there are regular scheduled services from Turku to Germany and the UK, as well as connections to ocean-going lines.

The port is part of the European Union’s TEN-T core network, and the cargo traffic from the port mainly focuses on traffic and project shipments requiring careful handling. The Port of Turku is the gateway to the world for goods such as machinery for the mining industry, highly refined steel products and forest industry products. The Port of Turku offers fast passage for heavy goods traffic, with uncongested connections to the main routes in Finland.

Thanks to long-term development work, the Port of Turku has become Finland’s leading distribution center for cargo traffic to and from Scandinavia. The Port of Turku has plenty of modern warehousing and terminal space for imports and exports, as well as extensive field areas. The country’s leading port operation professionals are responsible for careful and secure cargo handling.

Every year, approximately 3.5 million passengers pass through the Port of Turku. Four modern vessels operate the route between Turku and Stockholm, emphasizing environmental friendliness alongside passenger comfort. In 2021, a second vessel running on liquefied natural gas will begin operating the route. Like its predecessor, it will be equipped with rotor sails.
