Posti extends alternate-day delivery of mail so it can continue to offer traditional delivery services alongside digital services

Posti expands the alternate-day delivery of day mail to new areas in Northern and Southern Savo and Parikkala. According to the plans, the changes would take effect in May 2024.

In alternate-day delivery, delivery days for day mail alternate between postal code areas, which means that mail may be delivered on different days in neighboring districts. Printed mail is delivered on weekdays in alternating two-week periods: on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday one week, and on Tuesday and Thursday the following week.

In the first week of alternate-day delivery, the delivery days in the postal code area can be either Monday, Wednesday and Friday or Tuesday and Thursday. The following week, the days are swapped.

In alternate-day delivery, universal service items, i.e. stamped items, are delivered in accordance with the Postal Act. Alternate-day delivery does not apply to the delivery of parcels, with the exception of small parcels that fit in the mailbox or slot, which are delivered with day mail.

Morning newspapers will continue to be delivered early in the morning as before.

Magazines, addressed newspapers and advertisements delivered with day mail are delivered according to a schedule agreed with the senders. There may be some changes to the delivery times.

In Finland, regional alternate-day delivery is already in use in many areas. Similar delivery models are also used across the Nordic Region. The reason for this is the dramatic decrease in the volume of printed mail.

By renewing delivery, Posti can continue to offer traditional delivery services alongside digital services.

Route optimization also makes it possible to reduce the mileage, fuel costs and CO2 emissions. Posti is committed to achieving zero emissions by 2030.
