Huge ice masses. Piteraq-storms from the iceshield. Fog cover. A limited number of plains in the winter season. And a complex freight logistic.
That is just a sample of the challenges in maintaining a philatelic bureau in one of the most remote places in the world, Tasiilaq in Eastern Greenland. But none the less since 1989 POST Greenland, Filatelia has been based here.
The Greenlandic population is used to handling the tough working conditions offered by nature. But with the challenging conditions follows cancellations and delays.
Thus you must expect some expedition time, when dealing with POST Greenland, Filatelia. Especially in the time around new issues we do not always have the possibility to handle orders and answer questions as fast as we would like.
In the end the mail bags arrive safely to POST Greenland, Filatelia and the mail bags are sent of safely again.
