Today, it is increasingly important that ships spend as little time as possible in port. Fast and efficient loading and unloading and efficient forwarding in port is therefore one of the building blocks of Rauanheimo’s business operations.

The focus of modern stevedoring is on optimising flows of goods from an overall perspective. Therefore, we at Rauanheimo have expanded our port storage capacity and invested in modern equipment, making handling more cost-efficient.

Our stevedoring services are always customised to our customer’s unique needs and our experienced stevedores make sure all goods are efficiently and safely handled. We highly prioritise safety and continuously work to improve both quality as well as our occupational health and safety.

Large investments in port infrastructure

Thanks to large investments in infrastructure, we are today the leading bulk handling operator in Finland. In the past two years, we have invested 66 million euro in expanding the infrastructure in the ports, by acquiring new handling facilities, warehouses, cranes and conveyors. When needed, we also build larger entities, such as customised terminals for different flows of goods.

Large storage capacity

Our storage capacity now totals over 100 000 square metres, of which about 60 000 square metres are our own covered warehouses. We also offer large open-field storage spaces, which we rent from the ports.

Project cargo and container traffic

In addition to traditional container traffic, different types of customised project cargo are increasingly important to us. We are always ready to take on any of our customers’ transport-related challenges.
