Expert service in ocean freight

Ocean freight is often the most economical mode of transport between continents. Varova has decades of experience in international container and general cargo transportation. We offer well-established and regular connections to all major cargo ports in the world.

Far east and further

FCL containers can be shipped directly to  and from the container ports in Finland. Our LCL containers pass from the ports of the Far East and the Indian subcontinent to Finland without being opened on the way. This guarantees a reliable and fast supply chain. We also arrange full container cargo to various Finnish ports. In addition to Asia, we offer regular sea shipments from the United States, Canada, South America and Australia, among others.

Logistics at the main cargo port of Finland

The LCL containers arrive in Helsinki at Vuosaari Harbor, where our logistics operations are concentrated. The central location in the port enables a fast and environmentally friendly supply chain. In addition to unloading and loading containers, we also handle the sorting and repackaging of cartons and products according to the customer’s needs.

Ocean export from Finland

Our experienced ocean export team will take care of your exports to any commercial port in the world. As in ocean import, we transport both LCL and FCL to and from all continents. We can also help customers with demanding export projects.

Customs clearance and cargo handling

Customs clearance and freight forwarding make up an important part of the import and export process, and are one of the key strengths of Varova, based on over 70 years of experience. We guarantee that the shipments are handled with expert attention to detail by our dedicated forwarding team.
