Tallink saw a significant increase in the number of cargo units transported: + 5.7%, totalling nearly 385,000 cargo units transported in 2018.

The total number of passengers increased with 900 to the highest number ever: 9,756,611.

Tallink Grupp’s passenger numbers increased on nearly all the group’s routes and the number of cargo units transported increased on all the routes, with record numbers of passengers and cargo being transported on the Estonia-Finland routes and Estonia-Sweden routes, and the largest ever number of passengers transported also on the Latvia-Sweden route in 2018.

Despite the records achieved, the group’s revenue and profit were impacted by higher fuel costs, lower charter revenue and a longer-than-planned docking of one of the group’s vessels in spring 2018.

  • -1.8% revenue EUR 949.7 million (EUR 967.0 million)
  • -13.9% net profit EUR 40.0 million (EUR 46.5 million in 2017).

In 2018 Tallink Grupp’s vessels completed a record number of 10,070 trips.
