Transport strike will end – Posti’s deliveries to return to normal quickly, parcels to arrive in upcoming days


Finnish Transport Workers’ Union AKT’s strike will end on Tuesday, February 21, at 12 pm as previously announced. The Finnish Post and Logistics Union PAU’s support measures that begun on February 16 will end at the same time.

“AKT’s strike and PAU’s support measures have unfortunately caused delays and disturbances to our customers’ deliveries. We now focus on delivering the items we received after the strike as normally as possible. At the same time, we will dismantle the backlog that warehousing items during the strike caused. We will do our best to make sure all deliveries run normally as soon as possible. Thank you to all our customers for their patience,” says Jarmo Ainasoja, Head of Exception Management at Posti.

Finnish Transport Workers’ Union AKT’s strike in ports continues, which may have an impact on deliveries coming to Finland from abroad.

According to our estimate:

Early-morning newspapers were delivered normally during the strike, except for minor local disturbances.

Due to the backlog caused by the strike, we cannot investigate or expedite the delivery of an individual item. The status of a trackable item can be checked in OmaPosti or item tracking.

All deliveries will be completed as soon as possible. Items that could not be delivered due to the strike have been taken care of and stored accordingly.
