Over the course of the year, we successfully increased our tonnage from North America and Asia to Europe by providing our customers with the capacity and routes their businesses needed.
"This new service from and to Helsinki will allow us to support the those import and export flows which require direct Helsinki service. Furthermore we will also offer trucking services to the Baltic region and Scandinavia," said Robert van de Weg, ABC's senior vice president, Sales & Marketing.
