My Posti Experience

Tia Svinhufvud

Becoming a Driver through Apprenticeship Training

Tia looks forward to every work shift - Tia Svinhufvud is studying as a driver with Posti. Work as a driver interested Tia, and she heard that it would be possible to become a professional driver at Posti. An apprenticeship training partner, Keuda, was soon found from among Posti’s extensive collaboration network, so Tia was able to start her two-year course at a rapid pace.

Tia’s Internship is located at one of Posti’s sorting and delivery centres in Pasila, Helsinki. Tia’s training began with an induction, and when her temporary driver’s license was in order she finally got behind the wheel of a lorry. Tia and other Posti employees drive a combined distance of six times around the globe every day – carbon-neutrally, of course. 

“Now I practice driving independently. I mostly do deliveries between Posti's own terminals in the metropolitan area, but the traineeship also includes the pickups and distribution of deliveries to customers”, says Tia.  

Posti offers its customers the most comprehensive, digitalised and environmentally friendly freight services in Finland. For example, the freight terminal in Vantaa uses the latest technology: all transportation operations from loading to unloading are digitally controlled. 

The best thing about the job is looking forward to every work shift: “Colleagues and managers are always supportive, and I always get support from them when needed.”  

Tia’s studies are now moving towards the final straight, and she has begun to be interested in the work of articulated vehicle driver. Even more independent work fascinates Tia. There is already a discussion with the supervisor.
