Gateway Turku - the Port as a gateway to the world
Turku has been known as a centre of trade and seafaring in the Baltic Sea region for more than 850 years. All that time the Port of Turku has served as Finland's gateway to Europe and a link between the markets of the east and west. Today, the Port of Turku forms a modern logistics service centre that continuously develops its services as per the needs of businesses.
The starting point for the development of the Port of Turku is its location at the junction of the key traffic and goods flows of the Baltic Sea region. Rapid economic development makes the Baltic Sea region one of the most important economic areas in Europe. At the same time, the position of the whole Turku region as a channel of Finland's foreign trade and a transit route for international transport chains will grow stronger. The Turku region will become a centre-point where different modes of transport are combined into an efficient logistics cluster. As the transport volumes grow, supplementary and added value logistics services will increase in particular.
The Port of Turku strengthens this development by offering efficient logistics solutions and reliable partnership to all its customers and interest groups. Through its operations the Port of Turku contributes to employment and well-being in Turku, Southwest Finland and the whole country.
Christian Ramberg, MANAGING DIRECTOR of the Port of Turku:
"The goal of the Port of Turku is to be Finland's leading passenger and unit cargo harbour in the traffic between Finland and Scandinavia."
