There have been several important market events in Finland in February which may rebalance the paper market in Europe. The country's port and trucking industry workers went on strike on 15th February.
Some 9,000 workers took part in the strike. The strike began after the road transport workers’ union rejected an offer by state mediator Leo Suomaa to settle a labour dispute in the transport industry. As a result, the country's logistics chain came to a virtual standstill.
