Rail transport is Nurminen’s speciality

Equipment according to cargo

We have rolling stock to choose from. You can ship your cargo in container, woodchip, stanchion, tank, steel coil or temperature-controlled wagons. In addition, our comprehensive terminal and forwarding services as well as our other additional logistics services are available to you.

From rails to the sea

Our logistics centres in Helsinki and Mussalo have direct sea connections to all over the world. In Vuosaari, Helsinki, the railway tracks lead right into our terminal so that goods can be unloaded and moved into sea containers indoors.

A green flow

Compared to other modes of transport, the train is the most energy efficient and has the lowest emissions. In the EU, for example, only 0.5% of greenhouse gas emissions from transport are attributable to rail transport.*Globally, rail transport is increasingly electrified and the trend continues.**
