The development programme supports the growth of cargo traffic at Vuosaari Harbour. While the operations of Helsinki’s city centre harbours are being centralised, planning is already underway on the expansion of the Vuosaari Harbour field.

The Port of Helsinki is the main international trading port in Finland, and it will continue to specialise in unitized cargo, i.e. containers, trucks and trailers. The cost-effective and disturbance-free flow of Finnish export and business transports abroad secures the success of our small nation.

Vuosaari Harbour will be developed for the needs of cargo traffic.

Vuosaari Harbour will be developed for the needs of cargo traffic in particular, and therefore the harbour area will be increased. The sea fill area of approx. 10 hectares will bring additional space for cargo and car passenger traffic. 

Vuosaari will continue to be the main international trading port

Approximately 40% of Finland’s foreign trade passes through Vuosaari Harbour. The harbour is located in a fine location in the center of Finland’s population, production and consumption. At the same time, Vuosaari’s logistical location is excellent: highway-level roads, a railway line and a sea channel lead all to straight to the port. In addition, Helsinki – Vantaa airport is also nearby.

Several port operators operate in Vuosaari Harbour and a wide range of logistics services is available. Import and export are well balanced in Vuosaari Harbour.

Vuosaari Harbour also plays a significant role in the Helsinki region as a route for special transports. In addition, there is also some passenger traffic from Vuosaari to Travemünde in Germany and Muuga in Estonia.
