Oy Moonway Ab, a transport and
forwarding company in Turku, is now
part of the Backman-Trummer Group. The
acquisition will expand the range of services
offered by Backman-Trummer into dry and
liquid bulk transport and further strengthen
the Group’s position as an expert in export and import transport. It will also improve
Moonway’s prospects for developing new
high-quality, competitive logistic solutions but
will not affect its everyday operations. The
company will remain independent within the
Backman-Trummer Group; it will keep its
name and retain its staff. Moonway’s previous
owners, Tom Mohn and Jari Vuontela, will
continue to work for the company, the former
as managing director and the latter as financial
