Rail freight transport was opened for competition in 2007 in Finland, and the cross-border traffic between Finland and Russia in 2016. We started transport operations in 2016 with Keitele Group, transporting sawn timber from the Kemijärvi production plant to the Port of HaminaKotka. In 2017, our operations expanded to cross-border traffic transport between Finland and Russia. Since January 2018 we have transported a significant number of wagons carrying raw timber from border stations to UPM-Kymmene Corporation’s production plants.
We operate over the entire length of the Finnish rail network with five Dr18 diesel locomotives manufactured by CZ LOKO, and we employ a total of 24 people. We also use 22 rented wagons for the transportation of sawn timber, as well as two shunting locomotives.
