sustainable shipping

Meriaura is a Finnish family owned shipping company. We transport industrial bulk, recycled and raw materials and demanding project cargoes, in Northern Europe. Our vision is to be the leading forerunner in environmentally friendly, innovative and solution-oriented maritime transport and ship management services.

Throughout its history, the Meriaura group has sought to develop more sustainable shipping and find alternatives to fossil fuels. We want to be involved in building a sustainable society.

Our fleet consists of modern and versatile dry cargo ships and newly-built multipurpose deck cargo carriers designed for project and special cargo. All our ships are designed to operate safely in the harsh and difficult weather conditions of the Northern maritime region.

Our vessels operate around Europe, primarily in the Baltic Sea and North Sea areas. Central to the company’s ethic is our commitment to providing personal, customer-oriented service. This approach, combined with cost efficiency, technical quality and respect for the environment, ensures the quality of our services. Read more
