The operations of Port of Turku Ltd continued steadily in 2019 in line with the general economic development. The Port’s turnover increased by 3.8 per cent on the previous year, although the total transport volume was slightly down.
It is now possible to drive across Finland’s south coast almost all the way along a motorway. The last part of the E18 motorway from Turku to Vaalimaa on the Russian border was completed on 1 March, when the stretch between Hamina and Vaalimaa was opened for traffic.
The Port of Turku is known for its good and fast road connections. In recent years, the main routes for port traffic have undergone considerable development, and plans for further improvement of key roads are proceeding well towards implementation. In addition to speed and safety, the cost-efficiency of transports will be enhanced.
