10 Years in Poland

In September, Transpoint International (PL) Sp. z o.o. celebrated the 10th anniversary of its business in Poland.

The company was established on Sept. 14, 2001 under the name SP Transit Poland Sp. z o.o. as a branch office of the companies SP Transit Finland Oy and SP Transit Estonia OÜ, whose main shareholder was Finnish entrepreneur Lasse Jokinen.

From the beginning, the company’s strategic transport directions included Finland, the Baltic states and other Scandinavian countries.

Specialization, high quality service, competitive prices and an individual approach to customers based on partner relations are the factors that contributed to the company’s rapid development in Poland.

Changes in ownership that took place in 2007 were a turning point. As a result of these changes, SP Transit was taken over by one of the biggest logistics operators in Finland, Pohjolan Liikenne Oy, which is a part of VR Finnish Railways.

Since then the company has been operating under the name Transpoint International (PL) Sp. z o.o.

Joining the structures of a large, dynamic and international organization that has its own modern fleet, a vast distribution network and experienced sales departments enabled the company to expand its activity to the Czech, Slovak, Hungarian and British markets. In 2008, near Radzymin, 20 km northeast of Warsaw, a Transpoint logistics center was established along the Via Baltica route—a warehouse and office facility with an area of 6,700 square meters.

The range of transport services was expanded to include comprehensive services in storage and logistics and in the domestic distribution of goods.

In 2010, as part of structural transformations, 100 percent of the shares in Pohjolan Liikenne Oy and Transpoint International were taken over by VR Group Finnish Railways.

Today Transpoint International is owned by the largest logistics company in Finland, which is also the leading domestic operator in Scandinavia.

In 2010, the total revenues of VR Group reached 1.42 billion euros, with 12,000 people employed in Finland and other European countries. Of this, the cargo division and logistics yielded 576 million euros, including 252 million euros from road transport.

VR Group has a network of offices and warehouses in Finland, Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Britain, and Russia.

At present Transpoint has four branch offices in Poland—in Warsaw, D±brówka, Katowice and Gdynia. With the revenue target for 2011 at 30 million euros and a staff of 60, Transpoint International (PL) is one of the most rapidly developing companies within VR Group.

The main objective is to become a leader in transports between Poland and Scandinavia, in particular Finland. The company performs a wide range of cargo transportation services—from transport of small parcels to full truckloads and oversized loads.

The range includes regular LTL connections between Poland, Scandinavia, the Baltic states and Britain.

For two years Transpoint has been providing LTL transports to Turkey. Cooperation with its renowned partner Mars Logistics is highly effective and results in a dynamic increase in the number of truckloads.

Services provided by Transpoint also include air and sea transport.

Transpoint works with large, medium-sized and small companies.

The preferred model of cooperation is long-term cooperation based on partner relations.

As it marks its 10 years in Poland, Transpoint International is proud to have managed to meet its objective to become the number-one logistics operator for Scandinavian companies.
