We are a passionately managed expert organisation with a membership of 110 transport operators in Finland.

Lobbying, networking, communication and export promotion form the backbone of our activities.

We are a network for smart and sustainable transport

Globally, the transport sector is at an exciting stage of development, as both people and vehicles are connected to information and energy networks and become one of the most dynamic business sectors in the world.

The signs of change are visible in the Smart City plans of cities, in the strategies of car manufacturers and in investment news around the world.

We want to be part of this transformation.

In 2024, our activities will focus on working towards the creation of digitally-enabled transport ecosystems and promoting Finnish smart and sustainable transport know-how in both national and international markets.

Activities that benefit the whole industry

We communicate on behalf of and to the industry as a whole, raising awareness of the opportunities for sustainable and digital transport.

We promote the growth of the transport sector by networking transport operators in Finland and internationally.

We influence legislation, projects and funding instruments in the field: our interest is to increase the share of sustainable and digital mobility solutions in national and international projects, programmes and support funding.

We promote the brand of Finnish transport expertise by highlighting Finnish innovations, solutions and services as part of international advocacy, communication and networking. As a member, you ensure visibility as part of the Finnish brand for sustainable and smart transport.

Influence: a functioning transport market

We will build an environment and a functioning market that promotes the digitalisation of transport, taking into account the objectives of our network members.
