Posti has started to plan the expansion of the alternate-day delivery of printed postal items to Jyväskylä region. According to the plan, the changes would take effect in early 2023.
The delivery days for day mail would alternate between postal code areas, which means that mail could be delivered on different days in neighboring districts. Printed mail would be delivered on weekdays in alternating two-week periods:
Even after the change, newspapers would be delivered early in the morning on each day of the week, just like before. The alternate-day delivery does not apply to parcel deliveries.
In Finland, the regional alternate-day delivery is already in use in the Espoo, Kauniainen, Helsinki and Tampere regions. According to the plan, the delivery starts in Oulu, Pori, Turku and Oulu in the fall. The reason for this is the radical decrease in the volume of paper mail.
