A significant part of distribution areas are located in dispersed settlement areas, where it is necessary to use your own car for distribution work. Car area runner’s work is a steady job, where you distribute city papers and advertisements once or twice a week, on Wednesdays (and Saturdays).

Distribution days

There is work once or twice a week, on Wednesdays (and on Saturdays). If you are interested in working more often, it is possible to do sorting work for Wednesday’s distribution already partly on Tuesday. This way you will be able to finish for example two distribution areas on Wednesday.

Distribution area

We aim to select your distribution area as close to your home as possible. The area consists of 250–500 households.

Sorting of advertisements and city papers

Advertisements are delivered to runners in bundles. The sorting of the distributed advertisements is an essential part of the distribution work. There might be 5–15 different advertisements in the same distribution. Sorting often takes as much time as the distribution itself. Sorting might feel difficult at first, but you will soon learn to handle the products quickly.


Distributing advertisements requires diligence and sustainability. It takes usually 1–4 hours, or more to finish the distribution, depending on the area.


Salary is based on the size of the distribution area and the number of distributed products. We pay mileage to car area runners for using their own car.
