By choosing Posti’s freight services, you will gain access to the most comprehensive service in Finland that is fully digital as well as eco-friendly. The service is completely customized for your needs and you can combine it with warehousing services.

For freight, you have two options: delivery under a Posti Freight waybill or delivery under a Posti Express Freight address label. The service is completely digital all the way from order to transport tracking and the electronic waybill.

Posti Freight is designed for the transport of heavier goods from a single item to a full load – the waybill is used as the transport document and the pallet as the transport platform.

The most digital freight terminal in Finland at your service

Opened in 2018 in Viinikkala, Vantaa, our freight terminal uses state-of-the-art technology. All the operations from goods traffic to loading and unloading is digitally controlled. The automated process expedites the operations and improves quality by reducing human errors.

Vehicles, for example, are identified at the gate automatically and the system directly guides them to their designated doors. Digital tools are also extensively used inside the facility. All the 155 loading and unloading docks as well as freight storage squares have digital screens that make the work faster and easier.

Spanning about 26,000 square meters, i.e. more than three soccer fields, the terminal is one of the largest in Finland. The terminal processes about 5,700 pallets of freight shipments each day. The terminal operates around the clock six days a week, and 200–300 combination vehicles visit the terminal every day. Large shipments are processed in a covered loading area that is protected from the weather at all times of the year.
