Postal strike and the supporting measures

In the event that no resolution will be reached between the Finnish Post and The Finnish Post and Logistics Union PAU’s negotiations, Transport Workers’ Union AKT, Service Union United PAM and Finnish Seafarers’ Union FSU have announced their support measures, which affect the services of CHS.

Import and export shipments

Starting on Thursday 21.11.2019 at 06:00 Finnish Seafarers’ Union will halt Cargo transports/handling taking place on the car decks of ropax-vessels and passenger car ferries in foreign traffic.

Starting on Monday 25.11.2019 at 06:00 Finnish Seafarers’ Union will halt all cargo vessels in foreign traffic sailing under the Finnish flag and arriving to Finnish ports after 06 am so that they will remain in port.

Supporting actions on Monday will also have an impact on handling of air freight in the terminals and delays are expected.

As a result significant delays can be expected for all ocean- land and air shipments or they can stop moving completely.

We can offer alternative services for delivering shipment documents.

Alternative routings

We regret that the strike will affect strongly on our ability to provide the services for you as vessel and flight cancellations may occur. However we are striving to offer alternative routes and solutions in order to minimize the delays caused by the strike. These arrangements will cause additional costs and will be agreed case by case. To arrange such special routing please contact your named sales person or

We apologize for any inconvenience the strike may cause especially when CHS is not a party in the dispute.
