A vessel performing merchant shipping in Finnish waters pays a fairway due to the state. The amount of the fairway due depends on the vessel’s net tonnage, i.e. the size of the vessel, and the vessel’s ice classification. A higher ice classification lowers a vessel’s due. This system was created to promote shipping that considers Finnish winter conditions and the environment.
Hans Ahlström is the Deputy Chief Executive Officer at the Finnish Shipowners’ Association and is responsible for labor market and business policy.
