Industrial action to affect transports in Finland on Friday 18.9.2015

Work stoppages, demonstrations and strikes are scheduled to take place in Finnish ports and in the public transport sector on Friday, 18 September 2015 as a protest to government savings plans.

Varova logistics center at the port of Vuosaari will operate normally on that day. We also expect domestic deliveries and collections to run as usual.

However, the effects to port opening hours and ferry schedules are yet not confirmed. Delays are possible to both import and export shipments.

In case of urgent ocean and airfreight export shipments we ask you to contact our operations as early as possible.

Update 15 September

Port operations have been announced to halt between 06.00 Friday to 06.00 Saturday, while vessels are not loaded or unloaded. This will cause some delays to both exports and imports.
