    We provide regular and scheduled two-way rail transport from Helsinki to Tornio-Haaparanta and from Narvik to Haaparanta and back. Our railway connections from Gävle and Umeå also allow us to extensively reach different Swedish localities.

    On this route, we also provide unique temperature-controlled rail transport from Helsinki to Asia and back.

The temperature of the container can be adjusted between -25 and +25 degrees as needed.
Frequently asked questions
Here you can find our frequently asked questions and answers to them. If you cannot find the answer to your question, please contact us.
  • What kinds of goods can be transported by train?

    Just about anything that fits in a 45’ container can be transported as train cargo, from components to cars.
    We take on both full containers and break-bulk cargo. The temperature of the containers can be adjusted between +25 and -25 degrees Celsius, and as such we also transport products that require temperature control, such as chemicals
  • What information do I need to make a reservation?

    We need you to provide us information on the sender and recipient, as well as what kind of goods you are transporting and when they can be picked up. In addition, we will need information on the weight, volume (cubic metres) and number of pieces of the cargo.
  • When is it better to reserve an entire container rather than transporting as break-bulk cargo?

    Usually once the cargo reaches 30 cubic metres, it is not worth transporting as break-bulk cargo and it is better to reserve an entire container.
