Finland Post Renamed Itella on 1 June     

01.06.2007

From 1 June, Finland Post Corporation will be Itella Corporation and the Group will have the name, Itella Group.

The reason for the new name's adoption lies in the Group's more diversified and internationalised business operations: a wider range of logistics and information logistics services now supplements postal operations. In addition to Finland, Itella Group operates in eight northern European countries and a quarter of its net sales come from international operations.

Postal services will remain the cornerstone of our operations in Finland. Consumer services in Finland will remain under the familiar and reliable Posti brand, reflected in post offices, mail carriers, mailboxes, consumer websites and consumer communication and marketing.

From 1 June, Itella’s Northern European subsidiaries will also use corporate names consistently. The Group’s Logistics companies will mainly operate under Itella Logistics names and Information Logistics subsidiaries under Itella Information names.
