Estonia’s national postal operator Omniva and the national postal operator of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Kazpost, have signed a memorandum of cooperation for e-commerce collaboration.
The companies intend to ensure the safe delivery of parcels using the transit potential of Kazakhstan and operational and commercial experience of Kazpost, alongside access to Omniva’s customers and partners and its technologies for cross-border operations, and its delivery and reception centers in the EU and the USA.
Mart Mägi, CEO of Omniva, said, “[The] background of Omniva is a successful transformation from ex-Soviet background to world-leading tech and e-commerce company in the postal sphere. We see the exact same potential in Central Asia and we believe that in strategic cooperation with Kazpost we are able to make change happen in all of Central Asia. Through this partnership, people in Kazakhstan and Central Asia will have access to leading e-commerce platforms globally.”
Assel Zhanasova, CEO of Kazpost, said, “Kazpost has a developed ecosystem for e-commerce – a bond warehouse, 208 parcel – supermarkets across the country, more than 3,500 couriers, a virtual address service, and a mobile app. Moreover, the status of an economic representative of Kazpost makes it possible to save time and resources during customs clearance. All this allows [us] to reduce delivery time. Bearing in mind the significant role of the last mile in supply chain, we focus on collaboration with international partners. Therefore, cooperation with the Estonian postal service and their transport and logistics resources is important for us.”
