Rahja logistics
Funded by Interreg II Karelia 1996-1999

Objective of the project

The objective of the project was to study the possibilities of importing softwood timber from Russia using the so-called lower corridor (Komi-Vologda)-Karelia-Niirala-Kalajoki. The project creates opportunities for new businesses for the further processing of softwood. The project develops multilateral barter trade where Finnish industrial exports can be paid for soft wood imports from Karelia.
