YIT has signed a contract with Posti to carry out a terminal project in Viinikkala, Vantaa, Finland. The construction of the terminal property of 26,000 square metres is intended to begin in March and it will be completed in summer 2018. The total value of the project for YIT is approximately EUR 29 million. The project is located in K3 Logistics business area, developed by YIT, between Ring III and Helsinki Airport.

“The location of the terminal is ideal regarding material flows of Posti and our customers. The terminal meets the needs of Posti’s increasing freight volumes”, says Jaakko Kaidesoja, Head of Posti’s transport services.

“The new generation logistics terminal designed by Posti and YIT together represents the cutting edge of the field both technically and functionally”, says Heikki Lähdesniemi, Project Development Manager for the project at YIT.

“We will continue to construct both this significant terminal and at the same time the whole K3 business area in the logistic core of the capital region”, says Kalle Isometsä, Head of Unit at YIT.
