History

Our history in brief

Prima Shipping Group is a family-run company founded in 1987 by father and son, Leif and Christian Grönqvist. The Grönqvist family has carried out merchant shipping for more than half a century. Grandfather Runar Grönqvist built his first vessel, the galeas Margaretha, in 1947. Prima Shipping started with one vessel, the M/s Prima and continued to expand its fleet in the 1990’s.

Since 2011 Prima Logistics has been running the Port of Tolkkinen. Also our offices are located on the harbor area. Tolkkinen is situated in the Porvoo region, only 50 km east of Helsinki and just 5.5 km away from the Helsinki–Kotka motorway (E18).
