Our vision

Port of Tallinn aims to become the most innovative port on the shores of the Baltic Sea by offering its customers the best environment and development opportunities.

Our story

Port of Tallinn is the most innovative sea gate on the shores of the Baltic Sea. We have grown from a traditional infrastructure operator to a modern and multifaceted development and services company. We create the best environment and development opportunities for our customers by logistically combining the service of people and goods, shipping activities and the development of seaside real estate. We listen to communities and protect the environment. We are open, clever and trustworthy.

We represent the image of Estonia and are one of the engines behind Estonia’s economy. As a company owned by the state, we serve Estonia and its citizens. Our role is to improve Estonia’s competitiveness as a maritime country.

Strategy

Port of Tallinn sees new revenue generation opportunities in all its business lines: in the cargo, passenger, real estate and shipping business.
Our goal for the next five years is to systematically increase the competitiveness of cargo corridors passing through Estonia together with other members of the logistics chain. Our focus is on digitalising the logistics chain. We see opportunities in the growth of container transport and the liquefied gas market as well as north-south cargo flows. The replacement of fossil fuels with renewable and biofuels and alternative energy sources also presents new opportunities.

In passenger service, we see opportunities for growth in all ferry routes as well as services provided to cruise ships. This is supported by the addition of new ferries and cruise liners and Asian tourists’ growing interest in travelling in the Baltic Sea region. Accordingly, in the next few years our largest investments are mainly designed to support the growth
in our passenger service business and to improve our passenger service infrastructure by increasing service speed and quality.

In real estate development, we have started carrying out the development plan of the Old City Harbour, i.e. Masterplan 2030 created in cooperation with the internationally renowned Zaha Hadid Architects. In the long term, this will offer unique opportunities for profitable real estate development. In addition, we are going to increase the use of our existing
industrial parks at the Muuga Harbour, the Paldiski South Harbour and the Saaremaa Harbour.

In shipping, the main goal is to carry out the business plan and offer good service quality in providing ferry service between Estonia’s mainland and the biggest islands. Other goals include fulfilling the icebreaking contract during the winter and securing work for our multifunctional icebreaker Botnica during the summer.
