From the Haven to the Wide World - History of Rauma Port

The harbour – the Haven – has always been one of the significant competitive assets for coastal town Rauma.

Life and affluence have entered through it. It also provided the gateway from the small town to such metropolitan cities as Hong Kong or Rio.

The basic function of a port is to move cargo and voyagers onward as efficiently as possible. This implies increasing sizes in ships and cargo, advancing port technology, and constant extension of the port area. The time and labour required in the transport and handling of goods is constantly being reduced.

Today, the Port of Rauma is the third-largest container port in Finland and the fourth-largest general port in terms of foreign transport. Ships sail mainly to Europe, but also to the USA and the Far East from this busy port. In 2017, a total of 1,110 ships sailed to and from the port of Rauma. The most significant goods were forestry products and such mixed cargo and bulk goods as farming machinery, grain and fuels.
