DPD Estonia and the Estonian smart mailbox developer and manufacturer Parcelsea have signed a cooperation agreement for DPD to service the Parcelsea personal parcel machines.
“The cooperation will definitely be exciting because the Parcelsea solution is innovative, the developers are very open-minded and ambitious and the smart mailbox itself is extremely convenient for our couriers,” said Remo Kirss, CEO of DPD Estonia. “DPD aims to continue to offer the most convenient delivery solution and Parcelsea complements this option very well.”
According to Parcelsea partner Tanel Raun, the cooperation works well because DPD shares similar values to Parcelsea, such as a focus on environmental sustainability. He added, “We also plan to work closely together on development. We will receive valuable feedback from couriers on how to make the product even more convenient and maintain all high standards of data transmission. Of course, it is also important that DPD has the best courier network coverage across Estonia.”
Pre-orders for Parcelsea personal parcel machines have exceeded all expectations. The goal is to reach at least 1,000 operational smart mailboxes across Estonia by the end of the year. “In April, we will start fulfilling pre-orders for 100 customers. Orders have come from all over Estonia,” Raun continued.
Most smart mailboxes have been ordered in larger cities and their surrounding areas, such as Harju County, Pärnu County, Tartu County and Lääne County. Starting this spring, customers will also be able to send parcels using the same smart mailboxes, which is particularly convenient when returning products.
