You could call it destiny that FREJA was helping with the transportation of the children’s opera “RING”, as it happens that one of the characters in the opera is called Freia – the goddess of youth and love. The children’s opera RING is based on Richard Wagner’s four operas.
For this opera, FREJA sponsored all of the road transportation, where the whole production had to be moved from Bayreuth, Germany, to the concert venue, Musiikkitalo, in Helsinki, Finland, and back. All sets, costumes, wigs, masks, props, and orchestral music sheets had to be transported and the size of the stage elements was approximately 6 x 4,5 m. The opera was produced by Teatro Productions
International transportation will be done by FREJA in the future
“This was the first time I had to arrange international transport, so naturally I was a little bit nervous about it but working with FREJA made it very easy from the beginning. All my uncertainties eased, as FREJA was really good at constantly providing expert advice and answering my questions”, says CEO, Kaisa Näreranta, of Teatro Productions.
Before contacting FREJA, Näreranta says she did not know if FREJA was able to do a one-off shipping from Germany to Finland. Näreranta continues: “FREJA Finland’s CEO, Matti Urmas, responded on my inquiry quickly, which gave me a good impression from the beginning. My contact person at FREJA was the Traffic Director, Sampo Koulu. He was very patient and good at advising me, which I really appreciated since we had difficulties getting all the relevant information from Germany. After this positive experience, I would definitely choose FREJA again in the future and recommend them to others.”
The promise “FREJA always answers” was kept
Näreranta heard about FREJA on a radio channel, Business FM, in Helsinki, when she was listening to a marketing podcast by Riikka-Maria Lemminki, CEO of Marketing Finland. Lemminki talked about customer service and mentioned that FREJA was always ready to help and answer the phone – no matter the time.
“After listening to the podcast, my impression of FREJA was good, and I was interested in working with them. I am really pleased with the result of the transportation of the opera and the whole process and partnership with FREJA.”
