Omniva is to open an international hub in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, in September 2022 for accepting and sorting cross-border e-commerce parcels.
The location was chosen for its central position in the region, which enables delivery options from China, Europe and North America. The hub in Central Asia is expected to allow Omniva to transport international parcels more efficiently than the current logistics setup. It is also intended to reduce the company’s ecological footprint.
Omniva is an Estonian postal operator operating commercial networks in Latvia and Lithuania and focusing on expanding international cooperation. Its current hubs are in the USA, UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Lithuania, Estonia and Finland. Omniva has also begun cooperation in Oman and recently opened a new hub in Muscat.
Sven Kukemelk, vice president of international business at Omniva, said, “We are delighted to open a new hub in the region. Central Asia is a future growth area where Omniva sees great potential. In the next 10 years, we believe that e-commerce will triple in the area and our hub is conveniently situated to serve these emerging markets.”
