Conditions for goods transportations 2017

  • Goods transportations shall always be booked to Ålandstrafiken for freight from an end harbour to an intermediate harbour or from an intermediate harbour to an end harbour according to ARCHIPELAGO FARE. I.e. transportation of goods from one end harbour to another cannot be made during the same transportation when goods are carried to or from an intermediate harbour
  • For transportation of goods to/from an archipelago municipality an empty vehicle is allowed to be taken one way
  • Goods transporter shall book/change/cancel and notify the vehicle’s total weight to Ålandstrafiken (office hours) 2 hours before the departure from the harbour
  • A booking for the vehicle has to be changed/cancelled 2 hours before the departure from the harbour, otherwise the regular fare will be invoiced
  • If the vehicle reservation is not cancelled in time the regular fare will be invoiced
  • If a cancellation is not made at all it will be noted as a "no-show"
  • The goods transporters with the fewest no-shows have priority in the competition-neutral distribution of long-term bookings
  • For transportations for one end harbour to another we recommend privately owned shipping companies. However, if the transporter chooses to transport goods from one end harbour to another without a reservation the vehicle is charged/invoiced in accordance to TRANSIT FARES whether there an overnight stay in the archipelago or not
  • On request the goods transporters shall present a copy of freight documents to the staff onboard and assist in controlling the freight if needed. Random searches can be made by staff authorized by Åland Provincial Government
