Port of Tallinn

Address: Sadama 25

Historically the Baltic Sea region has acted as a major transport corridor both in itself and for the rest of the world; during the Middle Ages the Hanseatic League, uniting towns around the Baltic Sea, formed the most dominating trading bloc in the world. Today, the Baltic Sea region is the fastest growing business region in Europe. Trade flows between the countries of the region have increased constantly year by year. Estonia is a sea country – the length of the coastline (3,800 km) is about 6 times longer than the mainland borderline. Therefore it goes without saying – seafaring and port business have long traditions and a mayor impact on the whole country.

Port of Tallinn is the biggest port authority in Estonia and as far as both cargo and passenger traffic are taken into account, the biggest port on the shores of the Baltic Sea.
In order to fit effectively into the competitive environment, Port of Tallinn underwent a complete restructuring process in the mid 1990s by developing from a service port into a port of landlord type. In 1999, the last cargo handling operations were finally given into the hands of private companies. Today, Port of Tallinn operates as a landlord type of port with no cargo handling operations of its own. It is maintaining and developing the infrastructure of the port and leasing territories to terminal operators through building titles giving the operators an incentive to invest into superstructure and technology.

Port of Tallinn consists of five constituent harbours:

    * Muuga Harbour
    * Old City Harbour
    * Paljassaare Harbour
    * Paldiski South Harbour
    * Saaremaa Harbour

All harbours are navigable all the year round and easily approachable with depths of up to 18 meters enabling them to receive all vessels able to pass the Danish Straits.
All port facilities have security plans approved by the national maritime authority and compliant with ISPS requirements.

Port of Tallinn is determined to pursue the highest quality and environmental standards to ensure the well-being of all its stakeholders. Lloyds Register Quality Assurance has declared the management system of Port of Tallinn to be in compliance with the requirements of the international quality management standard ISO 9001:2000 and the environmental management system standard ISO 14001:2004.
