Port of Tallinn is delighted to host the Baltic Sea Ports & Shipping 2017 exhibition and conference from Wednesday 27 to Friday 29 September at the Radisson Blu Hotel Olümpia, Tallinn, Estonia.
The Port of Tallinn is the biggest port authority in Estonia, which operates as an intermodal hub, handling passengers as well as multiple types of cargo.
The company Port of Tallinn includes five harbours, none of which are actually named after Estonia’s capital. An umbrella organisation, Port of Tallinn consists of Old City Harbour, Muuga Harbour, Paldiski South Harbour, Paljassaare Harbour and Saaremaa Harbour. On average, these ports welcome 7000 ship calls annually of which 2000 are cargo vessels (bulkers, container ships, tankers, ro-ro vessels) and SOOD ferries and cruise liners.
At the crossroads of the East and West and the North and South, Port of Tallinn offers delivery time access to 4S0 million people within 72 hours. Port of Tallinn’s vision is to become one of the most modern ports in the Baltic Sea region. Modernity in this context means, for example, that in the future all operations connected to passengers and cargo clients would work very conveniently and function in a smooth and digitalized business environment. The goal is to develop Port of Tallinn to be a modern and innovative gateway to the city of Tallinn and to Estonia in general.
