Fast transport route
The Port of Turku provides speed and efficiency to the transports of trade and industry. Regular liner traffic opens up a shortcut for maritime transports to the key Baltic Sea ports and connects Turku to the ocean lines. The smooth flow of the commercial transport chains is ensured by uncongested road connections that are linked through the port to the TEN-T traffic network.
Because time matters
The Port of Turku offers a fast and cost-efficient route for import and export shipments of trade and industry. Regular and high frequency liner traffic to Scandinavia and Germany and the connections to ocean lines add flexibility to transport schedules and strengthen the delivery performance of companies. The ship traffic services are complemented by efficient cargo handling, warehousing and terminal services which are provided by the leading companies in their field.
Consistent transport chain across the Baltic Sea
The cargo traffic in the Port of Turku is operated by the leading shipping companies of the Baltic Sea whose modern ships serve both unit cargo transports and project shipments. Sufficient capacity and a diverse stock of vessels allow for even large export and import shipments via the Port of Turku.
Domestic and international transports are combined in the Port of Turku into an efficient transport chain. The arriving cargo can be unloaded quickly in the modern terminals located near the port, and from there the im-ported goods are forwarded quickly all over the country. Thanks to good road connections, time need not be wasted on waiting in traffic jams, but the goods arriving on morning ships can be delivered to the recipients dur-ing the same day.
Diverse stock of vessels for different transports
The emphasis of our Scandinavian traffic lies in unit cargo transports. The modern passenger car ferries carry trucks and trailers from Turku to Stockholm on four daily departures. The vessels of Viking Line and Tallink Silja have a total of nearly 4,000 lane metres of space, which means that a place for a vehicle can usually be found even at a short notice. Check-in for truck traffic is quick and flexible, and services for drivers work on board the vessels, too.
The shipping companies that run traditional cargo traffic operate from Turku both on modern ro-ro vessels and conventional cargo vessels. Thanks to diverse loading options, Turku is suited as an import and export harbour for products carried on wheels as well as machinery and components of heavy industry, and bulk cargo. In addi-tion to liner traffic, the Port serves efficiently also demanding project loadings and vessels in coastal traffic dur-ing their port calls.
