DACHSER grows in Finland 

DACHSER Finland will start operating a new logistics centre in Pirkkala, in the Tampere city region, in the south of the country, in the summer of 2024. The new facility for handling general cargo is located at Tampere-Pirkkala Airport and it might cover an area of around 5,000 sq m.
With the new facility, DACHSER is expanding its activities in Finland. Tampere in southern Finland is Finland’s third-largest city, an important economic region in the country and the largest inland centre in the Nordic countries. Pirkanmaa region, where Tampere is the biggest city, is an export-oriented and entrepreneurial region known for its manufacturing industry. With the new facility, DACHSER will offer companies in the region access to its dense European overland transport network.

The new logistics centre might be approximately 5,000 sq m in size and will act as a logistics hub for DACHSER in Finland. It has an expansion area of around 10,000 sq m and is thus equipped for future growth. “The expansion to Pirkkala and the Tampere economic area, which is known for its attractiveness, continues our growth story in Finland that began in 2014,” says Tuomas Leimio, Managing Director DACHSER Finland European Logistics. With the new logistics centre in the Tampere city region, DACHSER intends to offer customers in Finland even more comprehensive transport and logistics services.

The logistics provider has been active in Finland since 2014 and is already represented with a logistics centre in Kerava in the Helsinki metropolitan area, which opened in 2019. In Vantaa, Lahti and Tampere, DACHSER also has locations specializing in air and sea freight.
