People in Greenland like to shop online, but in many cases, international online retailers don’t send products to Greenland. The Faroese Postal Service, Posta, has developed a system that will help Greenlanders order products online and have them sent to their address, no matter where in Greenland they are located.
Buyers create a free online account using Posta’s new app, order their items, register their package and upload the invoice or receipt in the app. Posta receives the package at a location in Denmark, the buyer pays the freight and Posta then ships the package to the buyer’s address in Greenland. The buyer can track the package from order to delivery.
Delivery in Greeland is done in collaboration with TELEPOST, Greenlands public postal and telecommunications provider.
“We’re pleased to be able to collaborate with TELEPOST,” says Joel undir Leitinum, CEO of Posta. “Posta has a good, strong cooperation with TELEPOST and we’re happy that we can serve Greenlandic customers. This is in line with our strategy to grow into other markets.” Posta offers the service for fixed prices. Shipments to Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, cost DKK 375 og shipments to other locations in Greenland cost DKK 495.
