Technical disruption at the Helsinki postal center continues to cause delays

Technical disruption at the Helsinki postal center continues to cause delays. We expect the delays to decrease significantly over the next week.

There are regional delays in the course of daily mail, which apply to the Helsinki postcode areas: 00180, 00200, 00210, 00220, 00240, 00310, 00320, 00400, 00600, 00610, 00620, 00630, 00640, 00650, 00660, 00670, 00680, 00690, 00700, 00710, 00720, 00730, 00740, 00750, 00760, 00770, 00780, 00790, 00890, 00900, 00920, 00940, 00950, 00960, 00970, 00980, 00990.

At the Helsinki postal center, some of the reasons for the delay have been fixed, but some are still to be rectified. To minimize the inconvenience to our customers, we will continue sorting through exceptional arrangements.

We will report on the current situation next time on Tuesday 7 June.

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.
