CASE: A joint delivery contract with breweries

At the beginning of 2015, we started extensive cooperation with Sinebrychoff, Hartwall and Olvi. We deliver the products of these breweries as joint delivery to the agreed locations throughout Lapland. There are altogether 550 delivery points.

The contract covers terminal work, delivery, display and returns. The driver delivers the products to a jointly agreed location and picks up empty cans, bottles and wrapping for returning them.

In terms of net sales, this two-year contract is the largest individual contract signed by Posti in Finland. Cooperation also entails the development of the service together with the partners. Another goal is to collect information about and investigate advantages, disadvantages, opportunities and challenges related to the joint delivery of brewery products in sparsely populated areas.

Delivery has been partly combined with other groupage flows: brewery delivery has been combined with products to be delivered to shops and restaurants, such as bakery products and alcoholic beverages. This offers significant synergy benefits.
