Customer service will keep track of the days of distribution in your area and will be able to notify you of the first possible day you can have your stored mail home at checkout.
If you need to have the stored mail delivered on a day when there is no distribution to your private address, you can request that it be retrieved at Posten.
Newspapers are delivered every other day.
In areas where there are no separate newspaper routes, Posten has entered into agreements to distribute the newspapers. This means that Posten will distribute newspapers Monday–Friday to all subscribers in areas defined by the Ministry of Transport and Communications. In the rest of the country, Posten delivers newspapers every other day.
This means that some subscribers can receive two newspaper editions on the same day. If it is from a newspaper that is published in the immediate area, it will some days be fresh – if the publication is for example on a Tuesday and the postman visits your box on that Tuesday. The following week you will receive the Tuesday edition on Wednesday.
Please contact the newspaper publisher in case of delays.
