Dear Customer

Due to the strike of labor Unions in Finland, Transport and Logistics Union (AKT) and Stevedoring Union, all cargo handling will stop in all Finnish seaports starting on Monday 11. March 2024 at 6:00.


Consequently, only the units with driver (direct trucks) can enter the ferries, as no port operations or stevedoring is available for loose trailers.

This will cause several cancelled ferry connections per week, and forces logistics companies to use alternative routing. Additional consequences will heavily congested seaports and we expect all the remaining ferries to be overbooked, causing problems to have confirmed ferry places. We will also face a lack of haulage capacity, as every trailer will now go to ferry with tractor and driver.

Multiple ferry companies have also already published strike fees and higher prices, as they have to re-schedule and re-route several ferries during the coming weeks. We in Leman will of course do all needed to serve you in the best possible way during the strike period.

 In order to cover the expenses of longer and more complex routings, we are forced to implement strike fees for all the loadings/unloadings from/to Finland starting on 11. March 2024. Please contact your local sales or your daily operational contact.

We are reminded that during these extraordinary circumstances, we still expect some delays in transit times, and payment of strike fee doesn’t guarantee faster transit times. All schedules will be given based on the best knowledge and estimations at the time of shipment.
