Estonian delivery service Omniva has partnered with AliExpress, Alibaba’s online marketplace for smaller retailers, to provide access to its parcel locker network across the Baltics.
AliExpress shoppers now have the opportunity to select the nearest Omniva parcel locker to receive their goods, rather than declaring the item at the local post office.
All parcels that make their way to the Baltics through the network will have been declared by Omniva in collaboration with AliExpress, and the customer will not be subject to any additional charges.
Kristi Unt, member of the board of Omniva, said, “We will make shopping even more convenient and quick, and will speedily transport the goods to the nearest parcel machine. Omniva has the largest network of parcel machines in the Baltics and, regardless of the location, purchasers are able to receive the purchase at a time and place of their own choosing. So, it does not matter whether you live in Varbla, in Kuressaare, or anywhere else in Estonia. By ordering your goods to an Omniva parcel machine, you can be sure your package reaches you the fastest way possible.
“Omniva has enjoyed a lengthy collaboration with AliExpress and adding a new service is a sign of trust and quality. Our international parcel service initiative will hopefully gain momentum with this and will also contribute to e-commerce on the Asian route,” Unt added.
In the span of a year, roughly 3.6 million parcels are ordered from AliExpress through Omniva, with around a million shipments by Estonian shoppers. In the Baltics, Omniva has 924 parcel machines, 285 of which are in Estonia.
