Digikey ships all around the world. I am not too sure if in Finland it will come to your door. So phone them to make sure you know what's going on (you need your order number and shipping number, those should be in an email).

PS It's nice to see a fellow Fin on here. :)

It's been a while since I got a delivery from Digikey, but I got it delivered to my work address and it came by courier. On the back of their catalogue (which they sent me, without me asking for it) it says that "All orders are shipped via UPS". UPS normally tries your delivery address and leave a note to call them, if unsuccessful.

I can call up my aunt and uncle in Kouvola, they live close enough to find out about that, I'll probably call them really late tonight though, due to the 10 hours that they are ahead.

I live in the US. I just ordered some parts from digikey also. I think if you chose the right shipping method and the right address you should be fine. Good Luck :)

Yes, but this is Europe, different country, usually different methods of shipping. But really when you think of it, Helsinki is the capital of Finland, so really there shouldn't be any problem.

P.S. I did talk to my aunt, and she says that they get UPS deliveries and sometimes it gets transfered over to a different carrier, but the same shipping number will be applied to that.
