DACHSER enters the Finnish overland transport market on June 1, 2014 and has established the joint venture DACHSER Finland Oy for this purpose. ACE Logistics Group—a network partner headquartered in Tallinn (Estonia) with whom DACHSER has already collaborated for over fifteen years in the Baltic nations— holds a 50% equity interest in the JV.
Situated in Vantaa, near Helsinki, the new DACHSER location holds 1,200 square meters of transit and warehouse space and is connected via the daily departures to DACHSER’s European overland network. Oy Waco Finland, the air and sea freight shipping partner that is domiciled in the same location in Vantaa, additionally takes care of the connection to the intercontinental markets. DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics acquired the majority shareholding in this joint venture in 2013.
“The Vantaa location is ideally positioned, thanks to its proximity to the Finnish export and import customers,” explains Tuomas Leimio, Managing Director DACHSER Finland Oy. “Ultimately, 85% of the Finnish overland transport market transpires in the triangle formed by the cities of Helsinki, Turku, and Tampere. We see excellent growth prospects in the Finnish market backed by the global DACHSER network and its highly-developed processes and IT systems.”
