Postal delivery and logistics provider Omniva has announced its plans to expand its self-service parcel locker network by nearly 30%, with the addition of 20 new machines in Estonia, 22 in Lithuania and 30 in Latvia.
Omniva already boasts the largest parcel locker network in the Baltics with 246 self-service terminals and approximately 28,000 individual lockers. The addition of another 72 terminals will further strengthen the carrier’s vision of creating one unified parcel service for the whole of the region. Next year, Omniva plans to open its parcel machine network to its partners to help drive e-commerce activity.
Ansi Arumeel, a board member for Omniva, said, “Our customers are increasingly asking for the parcel solution to be available in the whole of the Baltics and it is our goal to take the service as close to our customers as possible.
“Although opening our parcel machine network to our partners might seem as if we are giving away our competitive advantage, we believe in constructive cooperation rather than building separate competitive infrastructure. That is why we decided to take the first step toward this cooperation.
“Our mission is to make parcel service for the client as comfortable as possible. Today over two million people trust their parcels in our hands. Expanding and opening our parcel machine network is another step toward a more simple and comfortable parcel service,” Arumeel concluded.
