Poland: Update 4th July
The strike by Polish customs officials has now ended. There may still be delays in the processing of dispatches due to the backlog of incoming mail. The situation should return to normal this week.
There may also be delays in mail deliveries due to restricted traffic zones for the NATO summit (Warsaw 7-10 July) and World Youth Day (Krakow 25-31 July). Difficulties in the centre for both cities and traffic problems at the sorting centres may affect operations at all post offices exchanging mail dispatches in Warsaw and Krakow.
Portugal: Update 1st July
The ground handling agent Groundforce Portugal staff were on strike from 1st to 3rd July. This may affect processing times for inward, outward and transit mails.
Finland: Update 28th June
Delays are expected for the delivery of mail in Northern Finland. This is due to the Rovaniemi Airports being closed from 28th June until 31st July for maintenance work. Letters and newspapers sent from or addressed to post codes 97-99 will take one extra day to deliver due to the closure. This will not affect the delivery of parcels.
