The Latvian subsidiary of Estonian delivery firm Omniva has entered into a cooperation agreement with retailer Narvesen Baltija to offer parcel pick-up services at more than 200 locations. Together with 92 new parcel machines to be installed at the end of the year, Omniva will offer the possibility to pick up parcels in more than 500 locations in Latvia by the end of 2021.
Kristi Unt, member of the board of Omniva, said, “The rapid development of e-commerce during the pandemic and the continuing high demand for parcel services are forcing us to continue to look for new solutions and forms of cooperation. Despite the fact that this year, we are investing in expanding the parcel machine network and installing 92 new parcel machines in Latvia, we are pleased to have established cooperation with a reliable partner that will bring us even closer to our customers.”
Dace Dovidena, CEO, Narvesen, said, “One of the main tasks of Narvesen is to be accessible to everyone, including in remote areas. That is our common goal with Omniva. As the services of Omniva are important to many Latvians, we are pleased to be able to provide the right infrastructure to make them even more widely available. This cooperation is the best way to achieve our goals by joining forces with like-minded partners so that all parties, especially the residents, benefit.”
Narvesen is the largest franchise retail chain in Latvia, with 24 years of experience and more than 230 retail outlets employing more than 800 people. The company offers customers quality coffee, fresh food and snacks, and magazines.
