Posti reports record parcel volumes

Finland’s Posti has reported that it delivered more than 34m parcels in 2016 – which was a new company record – and it will also be launching new “parcel pigeonhole” services for apartment block residents. “The high volume is particularly due to the growth in e-commerce,” said Posti. “The e-commerce volume increased by 7.3%, which translates into approximately one million parcels. In addition, Posti strengthened its position as a carrier of parcels between businesses and consumers.”

Posti said that its Parcel Points are becoming increasingly popular. “This year, the number of parcels traveling through Posti’s network of 480 Parcel Points increased by 39% from the previous year,” said Posti.

The company added that its response to the growing e-commerce includes providing “parcel pigeonhole services” for apartment buildings. The pigeonhole system allows the apartment residents to pick up their parcels at a time that is convenient to them.

“We will provide Finnish households with a completely new kind of solution for receiving and sending parcels. The new parcel pigeonhole service will be launched in collaboration with the housing developer Bonava in February 2017,” commented Toni Laaksonen, VP, Parcel Services at Posti.

Posti added: “According to plans, the new parcel pigeonhole system will be implemented in several new apartment buildings to be built in 2017 by Bonava in the capital region, Turku, Tampere and Oulu.”
