The hygiene security charge will be removed from use on 1 October

The hygiene security charge introduced in domestic road logistics due to the COVID-19 epidemic will be removed from use on 1 October.

It has been necessary to provide our drivers with high-quality protection in many locations during transports, as they meet many people in their work when loading and unloading supplies for recipients and when processing papers. We have been able to ensure the health security of our drivers and to guarantee safe and high-quality transports even during the COVID-19 pandemic and want to thank also our customers for this.

Hygiene security charge

Safe transport despite the escalating coronavirus epidemic – hygiene security charge for domestic road logistics 2 November. 

The situation caused by the coronavirus has affected our operations in many ways. However, the quality of our domestic road logistics has remained high during this challenging year. This is also thanks to our customers – transport is about teamwork.

In spite of the current exceptional situation, we aim to serve our customers in the best way possible and guarantee a safe, high-quality transport service. Our drivers meet many people in their work when loading and unloading supplies for recipients and when processing papers. This means that high-quality protection is necessary in many locations during transports. We are very grateful that our customers have taken our drivers into consideration in their operations and, for example, offered them the chance to wash their hands. Also, as the pace of transport has become faster, we appreciate giving drivers access to clean toilet facilities.

Our coronavirus-related hygiene safety work currently includes several procedures:

  • We carry out transport planning and monitoring so that we can avoid situations which we know pose a risk of infection.
  • We have continued to distribute face masks to drivers. Drivers use masks when necessary.
  • Our drivers keep safe distances according to instructions.
  • We have distributed hand sanitiser for our cars.
  • We have emphasised the need to wear gloves.
  • We follow all special instructions at different loading and unloading sites.

According to the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL), it appears the coronavirus epidemic is continuing to accelerate. We are currently operating very well under the exceptional circumstances. Due to the worsening coronavirus situation, we will implement a hygiene safety charge on Monday, 2 November. The charge will be EUR 1.90 per waybill, and it will help us ensure we deliver high-quality, coronavirus-safe transports. The temporary hygiene safety charge will apply to all domestic road logistics customers that send loads. The hygiene safety charge will be removed once the coronavirus situation allows us to return to normal operations. We will provide information about these changes separately.

We take the special measures required by the coronavirus very seriously and follow closely the instructions given by THL and other authorities.
