    Today, 10 February, an agreement has been reached in the negotiations led by the state conciliator, and industrial actions with their severe impact on Finnish export industries are coming to end.

    In line with the positive negotiation results DHL Freight Finland is removing the temporary positioning surcharge for road freight shipments to Finland. Shipments picked up on 11 February 2020 and thereafter are not subject to a positioning surcharge any more.

    For further information on the topic, please contact your sales contact or customer service at DHL Freight Finland.

    Current strikes in the Finnish export industries affect international road transports by DHL Freight. The strikes started on Monday 27 January and it is not certain when they will end, however the strong reduction of export volumes creates challenges in positioning trailers to load import cargo.

    DHL Freight will handle all loadings this week as agreed, without any additional charges. However, to position trailers for the loadings during week 6, we have to send out empty units from Finland. Therefore we shall debit a separate positioning surcharge, 25 per cent of the freight costs of the shipment, for all import shipments (groupage, part and full loads) to Finland, which are picked up starting from Monday 3 February for the time being (depending on the duration of the strike). 

    If you do not want your shipments to Finland to be picked up by us during the above mentioned exceptional period, kindly contact your suppliers or DHL Freight customer service and postpone your shipments until the end of the strike, when the situation should get back to normal.

    We regret that circumstances beyond our control have led to this situation.

    Should there be any new developments with an impact on our services – if, for example, the strike would expand, or end sooner than announced - we will inform you accordingly.

    For further information on the topic, please contact your sales contact or customer service at DHL Freight Finland.
