Kaukokiito as an employer
You know what they say about the strength of the chain and weakest links? So do we. That is why the carriers that own us have built Kaukokiito into an entity in which the different links strengthen each other.
Our owners are Finnish carriers that are responsible for the traffic and terminal functions of the Kaukokiito system in their respective regions, and also for making sure that goods are transported systematically and on schedule. A strong chain is made of strong links.
