Backman-Trummer Group

Oy Moonway Ab becomes part of the Backman-Trummer Group

Oy Moonway Ab, a transport and forwarding company in Turku, is now part of the Backman-Trummer Group. The acquisition will expand the range of services offered by Backman-Trummer into dry and liquid bulk transport and further strengthen the Group’s position as an expert in export and import transport. It will also improve Moonway’s prospects for developing new high-quality, competitive logistic solutions but will not affect its everyday operations. The company will remain independent within the Backman-Trummer Group; it will keep its name and retain its staff. Moonway’s previous owners, Tom Mohn and Jari Vuontela, will continue to work for the company, the former as managing director and the latter as financial manager.
