Smooth operations guarantee cost and energy savings for vessels
When providing mooring and unmooring services, we draw on the best practices from our years of experience and take advantage of modern technology. Using technology, we are able to monitor the movements of our customers’ vessels in real time, including outside of the port area. We are able to prepare for changes in vessel traffic and various situations together with our customers, and thereby to reduce vessel idling – thereby generating cost and energy savings for our customers.
For vessel mooring and unmooring, we are the only service provider in Helsinki to use a winch vehicle, which adds safety, efficiency and speed to vessel mooring and unmooring. The use of modern technology in our service provision guarantees timely, reliable, safe, and above all, cost-effective solutions for our customers.
Reliability and efficiency through experience
SF Port Service is a market leader in mooring and unmooring services in Finland, handling approx. 10,000 moorings and unmoorings each year.
Our company has a long history of providing mooring and unmooring services that spans several decades. For years, we have carried out development work to ensure that our mooring and unmooring services are extremely safe, reliable, and efficient.
The secret behind the excellent quality of our services lies not only in our company’s customer-oriented approach, but also in our experienced staff, our flexibility, and the utilisation of best practices, modern technology and our partners’ expertise in service provision.
The most competent staff in the industry
Our staff is extremely experienced, and new employees always undergo thorough induction concerning their tasks and work in the port area. We continuously train our entire staff in order to be able to guarantee that the competence of our staff meets our customers’ changing needs.
As a company, we also encourage our staff to take care of themselves. We offer our staff a wide range of occupational health services and various recreational and fitness benefits to support their wellbeing. We believe that the benefits of investing in staff wellbeing are passed on to our customers at the docks in the form of our cheerful staff and their visibly efficient work.
Safety is the cornerstone of our operations
In order to ensure a safe service, our staff are equipped with CE-marked high-visibility clothing which was purpose-designed in collaboration with Lindström’s workwear unit to meet the needs of vessel mooring and unmooring services. Our high-visibility clothing is designed to meet the needs of our staff and our customers.

In addition to high-visibility clothing, we also use personal protective equipment, such as helmets and life jackets when working on the docks. The majority of our employees have also completed a water rescue course, first aid course, occupational safety card course, and a VA course. Each employee has also undergone internal training and induction for safe work, and we also keep an internal register of the properties of various vessels and dock places that pose challenges.
Safe work is above all a right for our employees, but our customers also benefit from our investments into safety. Our high-visibility clothing makes our staff clearly identifiable on the dock, even from a distance.
Safety training enables our workers to identify any customer inadequacies and to give tips on them, and be able to provide first aid if the sudden and unfortunate need occurs. Safe working methods and various back-up arrangements means that we always moor and unmoor vessels as intended.
