The sorting congestion has been resolved at the Helsinki postal center, but the technical disruption still partly causes a delay in the flow of daily mail in the Helsinki area

In the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, there are regional delays in the course of daily mail, which apply to the Helsinki postcode areas 00200, 00210, 00240, 00310, 00320, 00400, 00600-00780, 00890, 00900 and 00920-00990.

The delay has been caused by a technical disturbance in the mail sorting of the Helsinki postal center, which is being rectified.

We will report on the current situation next time on Friday 13 May.

The delay may apply to letters, newspapers distributed with daily mail, advertisements, and small parcels that accompany daily mail and fit in a mailbox or door. As a precaution, we have also extended the shelf life of parcels whose arrival is notified by mail. The delay does not apply to the early morning distribution of newspapers or the distribution of parcels or other postal services.

About 80% of all paper mail in Finland is sorted at the Helsinki postal center. If there is a disturbance in one of the sorting centers, some of the items in the area can be sorted in other sorting centers of Posti, e.g. In Tampere, Kuopio, or Oulu.

We apologize for the delay and any inconvenience to our customers.
