Statistics Finland


The coronavirus pandemic still had a strong impact on the number of passengers in foreign sea transport, which in 2021 reached only 32 per cent of the 2019 level before the pandemic. A total of 94.1 million tonnes of goods were transported in foreign sea transport; the volume decreased by two per cent from the previous year. These figures are final data for Statistics Finland's statistics on foreign shipping traffic.
