Sorry Bosse Zetterqvist, your hollow comments have been exposed.

Posten delivers wine to Systembolaget’s 510 collection points, which are able to check if the recipient is over 20 and sober, but Posten can not do this through their own collection points (many of which are the same place). Bo, can you let us know how many collection points you share with Systembolaget? 

Below is from Systembolaget’s own website about their Ombud (collection point) service.  Bo Zetterqvist and Lars. G. Nordstrom work for a company  owned by all Swedes and in the service of all of us and should explain why they will only deliver alcohol sold by Systembolaget and not other companies operating legally in Sweden.  

Leveranser
Din beställning levereras alltid så snabbt som möjligt. Efter sista beställningstid hos ditt ombud plockar vi ihop varorna. Därefter levererar Posten dem till ombudet. 

Utlämning och ålderskontroll
Utlämning av beställda varor sker under samma tider som Systembolagets öppettider (öppettiderna regleras av riksdagen). Därför sker ingen utlämning på söndagar eller helgdagar.
Försäljningsreglerna är desamma som på Systembolaget, det vill säga man måste vara minst 20 år för att handla, ombuden lämnar inte ut till berusade eller när man misstänker langning.

If we are to believe Bosse’s explanation (see posting below) we also look forward to the big jolly guy in red and white delivering our packages this Christmas, not Posten!If you have a choice how to send packages this festive season and like quality wine, try and use a company that supports free choice.

Cheers!

Mark

Why doesn’t DHL or Schenker jump at this lucrative new market and grow at the expense of Posten?
