The Lahti region forms an area where traffic and goods meet. The excellent location within the Helsinki metropolitan area, by railroad and at the junction of major roads, guarantees easy transport to Finland, Europe and further into international markets.
Helsinki Airport is more easily accessible from Lahti than it is from the congested capital region. The Russian market is approximately 2.5 hours away by train and there is a fast motorway and rail connection to the Vuosaari harbor. 80 % of the Finnish market is within a 150-kilometer radius and the entire country is reachable within 24 hours.
Congestion-free connections and a versatile supply of properties and business areas offer an excellent setting for logistics companies. The vibrant area, good services and logistically central location support the competitiveness of any other type of business as well.
Good logistics is more than flexible and fast connections: it includes storage, sorting, product finishing and specializing. Good connections have created a large logistics center in the Lahti region. The companies in the area include transport and forwarding experts, fashion and furniture logistics operators, heavy steel transport companies as well as several central warehouses, such as the Finnish central warehouse for Bridgestone, the car tyre storage and distribution specialist.
