The Finnish shipping line Finnlines Plc said on Monday (10 April) that its result for the first quarter will be weaker than the result for the corresponding period last year.

Finnlines said that due to hard competition it has been unable to compensate higher costs with freight rate increases.

Finnlines also said that the full-year result is likely to fall short of market expectations.
