Frequently asked questions
Do I have to pay something to call Posti’s customer service?
Our customers will pay a local network charge or mobile charge to their own telephone company for calling us. The telephone charge starts as soon as the call is connected, which means that waiting in line is also subject to a charge.
Are the calls recorded?
All calls to Posti Corporate Customer Service are recorded. The recordings are used to ensure the legal protection of the customer and Posti. The recordings can also be used in personnel training and improving customer service quality. The records will not be used for other purposes or disclosed to outsiders unless required by law.

The item tracking only indicates the following information: ”Posti has been informed of an incoming shipment.” When will we receive our shipment?
We have only received an electronic advance notification (EDI) for this shipment. This means that the item has not yet arrived for transport by Posti; please wait patiently for a little longer. However, if plenty of time has passed since the EDI message, please contact the sender of the shipment.
The item tracking indicates “Rerouting”. What does this mean?
When the tracking indicates "Rerouting", the recipient uses Posti's Parcel routing service for consumers. This means that the parcel is directed to a collection point selected by the recipient-for instance, the nearest Parcel Point.
The most recent entry for the shipment is sorted. When will we receive our shipment?
Usually, parcels are delivered the next working day after sorting. Please note that between some destinations, longer delivery times apply. Please check the delivery time with the delivery time inquiry.

Reasons can include a door access code, the ground floor door being locked, access by car hindered, pets. If there has been no obstacles at the recipient's, the driver has visited the address and ringed the bell or buzzer, but no-one opened the door.
The item tracking indicates that there has been a delivery attempt – why didn’t anyone call us?
In the case of the Parcel to the Doorstep service, the recipient should be called to schedule the delivery. If this did not happen, it is due to human error. Please contact the customer service.

Our company uses the Pick-up and Delivery Service, why is our shipment at the postal outlet?
If it is a Registered Letter, the direction of the shipment depends on the recipient information recorded on the letter. Please contact the customer service.
The tracking indicates “Returned from outlet”. What does this mean?
The storage time of the shipment has expired, and it has been returned to sender.
We sent a shipment abroad. Why does the item tracking not indicate any information after the shipment left the country?
Even when there is a tracking service in the country of destination, the information will not be updated in real time. Please check the country information for estimated delivery times. If the shipment delivery time has been exceeded, the recipient can contact the nearest postal outlet or the customs for the shipment.
