Facts & FiguresSmooth and well-organised logistics is very important for business life, and particularly for competitiveness of imports. Finland is located on the periphery of Europe and transport journeys within the country are long. Logistics costs, therefore, amount to 13 per cent of businesses' turnover.
Although away from the main market areas of central Europe, Finland’s location next to Russia has made it an important transit country for goods transport. Transit goods to Russia arrive in Finland by sea and are mainly transported to their destination by road.
