Express Post, a postal service company, has announced closing down their home delivery business line, making approximately 450 workers redundant. The job reductions are to be implemented according to a planned schedule throughout 2023, and mainly concern postal delivery workers. Management cites the reason for closing down the home delivery business line as increasing losses over years. According to the management, the company is cooperating with Unemployment Insurance Fund to support workers during reductions and in their search for new jobs.

Express Post, established in 1997, was engaged in home delivery of periodicals as well as advertising and business letters in the largest cities in Estonia and in their vicinity. While closing home delivery, Express Post will continue offering centre service and a management service for the subscriber bases of periodicals. 

Express Post is owned in 50% by Express Grupp and 50% Postimees Grupp. Both are Baltic media groups whose key activities  include web media content production as well as publishing of newspapers, magazines and books.
