Kvarken Ports is a cross-border port concept, which meets the future demands for new and important transport and logistics solutions for the Baltic Sea. This joint port company in the Kvarken region between Finland and Sweden supports business development as well as the increasing volumes of goods and the numbers of passengers in the Kvarken region. Kvarken Ports is a limited company owned by the Umeå Kommunföretag (City of Umeå) in Sweden and the City of Vaasa in Finland.

The strategic location of the port of Vaasa near the international airport, with good road and rail connections, provides good conditions for handling fuels, agricultural products, and project cargo. The port has expertise and resources to handle demanding project cargo as well as transport from or to the region’s energy, engineering, and metal industries. The port of Vaasa offers the northernmost open year-round waterway between two countries by sea to Umeå and connects the E12 route from Russia all the way to Norway and the Atlantic Coast.
