Changes in parcel and freight services for businesses
In 2021, COVID-19 is still affecting Finland and the transport sector while parcel volumes have grown at a record rate. Under these exceptional circumstances, we have continued to actively develop our services and customer experience: our service network is now wider than ever, and we are still developing it on the basis of regional needs. Our ambitious, science-based climate targets cover both our own emissions and the emissions of our value chain. For example, we already transport more than 10 million parcels a year completely fossil-free using renewable fuels. Due to rising costs, we will adjust the prices and terms of our services from November 2021 and January 2022.

Freight fuel surcharge to be updated
A year ago, we combined the fuel surcharges of two freight services, Freight and Express Freight. We now continue to modernize our services by updating the fuel surcharge for our freight services. Sharp increases in the price of fuel and the transition to alternative fuels have led to a situation where the current fuel surcharge is out of date. We do not expect fuel prices to fall significantly. With this change, we are preparing to take into account the use of various biofuels and electricity as well as future changes in our fleet. From November 1, 2021, 20 percentage points of the current fuel surcharge will be added to the basic prices of Freight and Express Freight. The new fuel surcharge will be determined so that the total price, which includes the fuel surcharge, will remain the same at the time of the change. The amount of the fuel surcharge will be reviewed monthly. The new fuel surcharge, which will take effect on November 1, 2021, will be announced in late October 2021. An example of the total price, including the fuel surcharge, of freight services in September 2021 Current fuel surcharge The price of freight for the customer EUR 200 + fuel surcharge 27.12% Total: EUR 200 + EUR 54.2 = EUR 254.2 New fuel surcharge The price of freight for the customer EUR 240 + new fuel surcharge 5.93% Total: EUR 240 + EUR 14.2 = EUR 254.2
