Port of Kokkola


The port of Kokkola is in an excellent location for serving the majority of Finnish import and export transports. The efficient rail and road networks provide fast connections to other parts of Finland, as well as into Russia.

The ports many state-of-the-art facilities include a side tippler shooter for an open-top rail wagon loader, and a safe fairway of 13 m that accommodates Panamax class vessels of up to 120,000 DWT. The infrastructure for bulk handling at the Port of Kokkola also includes conveyors linked to the railway site, large storage areas and warehouses, scales, wheel loaders, dumpers, conveyors and trucks etc. of all sizes.

A significant competitive advantage is Kokkola's All Weather Terminal (AWT) - one of the largest covered terminals in Europe. Adverse weather conditions no longer affect timetables, and the quality of goods is maintained.
