The Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority recently investigated suspected abuse of the dominant market position of major harbour towage service operators. Based on a competitor’s complaint the authority investigated the suspected abuse in harbour towage services in the port of HaminaKotka and other parts of the Finnish coast. The authority found no form of abuse of dominant position in the operators’ activities.
Senior associate Maarika Joutsimo and partner Herman Ljungberg from Hammarström Puhakka Partners, Attorneys Ltd, have written an update on this matter. The update titled “Suspected abuse of dominant market position in harbour towage services” has been published in the International Law Office’s newsletter.
