“The strengths of Kouvola are location, quality of logistics services and adaptability to various modes of transportation,” says Simo Päivinen, Development Manager at Kouvola Innovation Oy. “This result is a prize for the whole region.”
The comparative study of European logistics centers was conducted by Deutsche GVZ-Gesellschaft, a union of German logistics centers. This year, the study included 300 hundred locations from 30 different European countries.
Annually, around 8 million tons of cargo runs through Kouvola, a figure estimated to rise in the years to come.
“We continue the development of our logistics,” underlines Päivinen. “The city itself is deeply committed to the development framework.”
