Estonian-based post and parcel carrier Omniva reported an increase in parcel volumes of 10% in December 2015 when compared with the same month the previous year. At the same time, the international carrier reported a decrease in letter volumes of 14% for the same period.
Sten Argos, head of parcels at Omniva, said, “More than half of the maxi letters came from abroad, indicating that people enjoy ordering goods from other countries. In turn, almost half of the foreign deliveries came from China.
“When we compare the parcel volume of the first three weeks of December with the population of Estonia, it can be said that every third person received a parcel delivered by Omniva.
“Several office workers were also helping out at the sorting department before Christmas. Thanks to the timely response, we could handle the Christmas volumes nicely and were also able to deliver packages from abroad in a reasonable time.”
