Varova Oy was established in 1948. The company first offered services to the Finnish Post and YLE, the Finnish Broadcasting Company. Their equipment needed to be handled very carefully and that is the reason why the company was named Varova (= careful).
To years of international growth
During the 1980’s Varova grew and became strong in international transports by expanding its operations from Europe to the Far East. In the 1990’s airfreight and transit traffic to Russia grew rapidly.
Today, Varova is one of the largest privately owned Finnish companies in the international transport and forwarding business.
