The national postal and logistic services operator Posti has decided to introduce an extra delivery fee outside of the European Union from next year.

Posti, ub a press release said the handling fee will be introduced for shipments over EUR 22 from outside the EU. The fee is EUR 2.90 per shipment and will come into effect on January 31, 2020.

According to the release, “As the international e-commerce grows, the fee will cover the costs associated with the handling, notification procedures and warehousing of items. Most of the goods arriving in Finland are of less value than EUR 22, and the fee will not apply to them.”

“The costs associated with international e-commerce will now be covered by the corresponding operations. This helps ensure equal opportunities in trade as well as the competitiveness of Finnish online stores,” said Sami Finne, vice president, International eCommerce at Posti.
