In Finland, the logistics service market is mainly functional, the supply of logistics services is of high quality by international standards and logistics competence is at a commendable level. At present, the coverage and capacity of the Finnish transport network is mainly sufficient.

These were assessments made by a special enquirer group set up by the Ministry of Transport and Communications. The task of the group was to examine the bottlenecks and needs for development in the Finnish foreign trade logistics up until the year 2030.

The survey was part of the preparations for the transport policy report and has been written into the Government Programme. The examination was carried out by Mr Jyrki Paavola (chair), Member of the Board at Hacklin Ltd, Mr Antti Vehviläinen, Vice President of Transport and Distribution at Stora Enso, and Mr Lauri Ojala, Professor of Logistics at the University of Turku.
