Changes to publication services

On this page you can find information on the changes to publication services that will take effect in early 2017. There will be changes in areas such as the delivery speeds of services. This page will be updated as we progress with the changes.

Mailing Desktop was reformed in November 2016

Ordering publication deliveries is now more flexible. For instance, you can place several orders for a publication at the same time. Ordering publication deliveries for 2017 has now begun.

How to place an order  

  • Log in to PTP and open the Publication Deliveries tab. 
  • You can place several orders for a publication and name them as you want.
  • When you have entered the basic information, you will receive a proposal of the posting place and time. If the place and time are not suitable, you can change the proposal and will immediately see how this will affect the delivery of your publication.
  • Log in to PTP from Posti service portal. See more detailed ordering instructions here (In Finnish only).

    New services as of January 2, 2017

    We will reform Nationwide and Local Publication Delivery services. The Nationwide Publication 1 service is suitable for you if you want to deliver you publication quickly throughout the country. An advance order is not needed and you can order the service directly from the electronic mailing list.

    In addition, we will introduce new supplementary services in Local Publication Delivery that concern the posting time of publications using the Daytime Publication Delivery service and bundled publications.

    New payment indications as of January 2, 2017

    The transition period for changes will be until the end of March, 2017.

    Changes in the delivery speeds of Nationwide Paper Delivery

    The delivery speed of the Magazine 2, Newspaper 2, Publication 2 and Bundle 2 services will change in early 2017. Following the change, items will usually be delivered on the third weekday from the posting day. You can expedite the delivery speed of the Magazine 2, Newspaper 2 and Publication 2 services by using the Sorting Service if the batch size or partial batch size is at least 15,000 units. The mailer company must sign an agreement with Posti regarding the use of the Sorting Service. When your mailer company uses the service, your item will usually be delivered on the second weekday following the posting day. Read more about the Sorting Service.

    As a result of the reforms to delivery days, Nationwide Paper Delivery products will not be delivered on Tuesdays starting from March 6, 2017.

    The delivery speed of the Long-Distance Publication Delivery service will change in early 2017. Following the change, items will usually be delivered on the weekday after the posting day. As a result of the reforms to delivery days, Long-Distance Paper Delivery items will not be delivered on Tuesdays starting from March 6, 2017. The delivery speeds of Early-morning Delivery and Daytime Delivery will remain unchanged, and items will also be delivered on Tuesdays.

    By using the Sorting Service in conjunction with the Long-Distance Publication Delivery and Daytime Publication Delivery services, you can ensure that your newspaper is bundled and unitized correctly, which guarantees punctual delivery. The Sorting Service cannot be used to expedite the delivery speed of these items. Read more about the Sorting Service.
