-5.9% cargo units, mostly due to the ending of traffic to and from Russia. The volume of imported paper has decreased due to lower demand. Export from Finland has remained approximately at the same level.

Turnover for Wasaline stayed the same compared to 2022.

Wasaline expects the first two quarters of 2024 to be difficult for both passenger and freight services due to the current economic downturn.
