Long-standing trade and economic ties with Finland are growing more and more each year. Trade is growing, which affects the volume of freight traffic between neighboring countries. As experts estimate, 70% of the total volume of all transport operations in Russia are freight to or from Finland.
Finland as a trading partner
Finland is an economically developed country. Large industrial cities - Helsinki, Tampere, Turku, Lahti and others. The country has 25 airports through which you can quickly deliver small loads to any country in the world.
Russia supplies the northern country with fuel (products of the oil and gas industry), metal and rolled metal products, power equipment, plastics and polymers, and drugs. From Finland to our country comes the forest and wood products, construction materials, food, electronics and electrical products.
Finland actively develops trade relations with the European Union countries - up to 60% of the total turnover with foreign countries falls on European countries, including:
- Great Britain;
- Romania and others.
Finland exports machinery and equipment, petrochemical products, paints, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, wood and lumber to these countries, as well as the United States and China.
In Finland, a freight transportation system is developed - the fleet includes more than 130 thousand trucks of different carrying capacities, of which more than 10% have permits for international transportation. Overland transportation is the most developed one. Up to 400 million tons of cargo is transported by road, 4 times less by sea routes..
Transportation of goods to Finland
Regular cargo transportation between Russia and the northern neighbor is more convenient to produce by land transport. Road and rail transportation is the most popular way to deliver cargo. This is facilitated by a small distance between the points of loading and unloading, the absence of transit borders. Maximum delivery time to the neighboring country:
- by road - up to 3-5 days;
- by rail - from 3 to 8 days.
Oversized and bulky General cargo can also be transported by sea. The major Finnish sea ports of Kotka and Helsinki are often used as a transit point for further delivery to Europe and other continents. Sea freight can take up to 2 weeks.
Transit through Russia
Through the territory of the Russian Federation from Finland sent goods to Europe - Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and others. This is the shortest and fastest way to deliver goods, compared to the sea. Different types of transport are used for transportation:
We arrange the delivery of both general and consolidated (groupage) door-to-door cargoes, providing the customer with the ability to track the location of the cargo all the way. At the request of the owner of the goods we will provide cargo escort by specially trained guards.
