Posti re-affirms schedule for combining domestic letter classes and supports calls for deliveries three days a week

Finland’s Posti has re-affirmed that it will be combining its domestic letter 1st and 2nd payment classes on 1 January and also supported plans for a three-days-a-week delivery plan. In a statement issued today regarding the combining of letter payment classes, Posti said: “The new payment indications will already be adopted on November 10 when the last stamps of the year are published. Domestic and international letters and cards, and in the future also Christmas greeting cards, can be sent with a no-value indicator stamp that keeps its value.”

Meanwhile, in a statement issued on Thursday (15 September), Posti said that it supported an option presented by the Ministry of Transport and Communications “that would repeal the provision on delivering items covered by the universal service obligation on five days a week and enable delivering them on three days a week in the future”.

According to Heikki Malinen, President and CEO at Posti: “Customers want to consume reasonably priced postal services. By deregulating the universal service, we could keep the delivery costs of all items, including newspapers, in control. This would secure deliveries in all parts of the country.

“Without these amendments, the universal service might become financially unsustainable, which might require more public funds for postal delivery.”
