Finnish postal service provider Posti will install new mail sorting machines later this year, after plans were delayed due to COVID-19.
The new sorting machines will be located in Oulu, which will receive one machine, and in Helsinki, which will receive two machines. They will be installed in the third quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2021 at the latest.
Posti also plans to install new sorting machines in Tampere and Kuopio at a later date.
The new machines will complement the network of six similar machines which Posti says will together cover all of Finland’s mail sorting needs.
Sami Reponen, production director, postal services, Posti, said, “The sorting machine quickly sorts items into the delivery order, which means that the deliverer doesn’t have to sort the items according to the mail recipient’s address to the same degree as today.”
