Case: Fully electric home deliveries in Helsinki


In 2021 Posti started a new operating model, where the recipient of a parcel receives a narrower delivery window and real-time map tracking for their delivery. At the same time, the parcel delivery times were made a day faster. The features are now being adopted in Helsinki, Vantaa, Espoo, Turku, Tampere, and Oulu. In Helsinki, parcel home delivery is fully electric.

Posti has acquired 18 new electric vans for electric deliveries in the region. Therefore, all home deliveries in Helsinki using narrower delivery windows and map tracking will be 100% electric in the future. All electricity used by Posti is renewable, so parcel home deliveries in Helsinki are completely emission-free.

In the near future, we will be announcing new regions where we will implement fully electric deliveries.

In total, by the end of 2021, Posti has almost 100 electric vans and is planning to, at least, double the amount by the end of 2022.
