Eesti Post struggles after tax rate rush
Estonian operator Eesti Post is having problems delivering packages after being busier than usual at the end of 2009, Estonian media reports.
The company received several times more packages from countries outside the EU than usual is now jammed up.
“Naturally this is connected to the changed import tax rates too,” said Eesti Post AS board member Aavo Kärmas
He said that people all wanted to send their packages before the tax was increased but there was Christmas also and Eesti Post cannot be responsible for how postal channels of other states operate, reports The Baltic Course.
