Special arrangements for mail traffic to China


Posti is rerouting its mail traffic to China due to flights being cancelled because of the coronavirus. For now, mail can be transported to China about  once a week. The delivery of items will be delayed due to the use of special schedules and routes.

According to China Post, its operations in China are running almost normally. However, delivery days have been reduced to around two or three per week in many areas of China due to the risk of infection.

Items’ tracking information will be incomplete due to the special arrangements.

The delivery of online purchases from Chinese online stores to Finland will also be delayed. Some of the items will be delivered as usual, but rerouting as well as lack of stock in Chinese online stores will cause delays also for items being delivered to Finland.

According to the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare, receiving items from China is safe.  Read more about this topic on the THL website.
