Rauanheimo is a leading port operator that has grown rapidly in the past few years. The secret behind our growth is our long experience and strong investment capacity.

We now operate in all major ports in Finland, and continuously look for business opportunities in new locations, all the while investing in our current ports.

In logistics, efficiency is at the core of everything, and therefore our business concept is to customise cost-efficient solutions for our customers. Our aim is to always create efficient supply chains from an overall perspective. This is possible thanks to our wide selection of services. Our services include, among others, added-value services, warehousing and industrial goods handling.

Thanks to our rapid growth, Rauanheimo is today Finland’s largest actor in dry bulk handling in the ports.
