Omniva plans to install 267 parcel machines across the Baltics to invest in its network for 2022 and 2023.
Of the 309 parcel machines in Estonia, approximately 30 are in settlements where only Omniva is present. According to the company, it supports people living in smaller settlements, where there are fewer retail establishments and more people ordering basic goods and services – either by courier or to a parcel machine. As a result, Omniva will install 40 new parcel machines across Estonia in 2022, in cooperation with local municipalities.
Omniva parcel machines are located outdoors and can be accessed at any time of day or day of the week. They can be used to send parcels to Omniva parcel machines across the Baltics and to post offices, or to order a courier delivery. In addition, parcels up to the largest size (39 × 38 × 64cm) can be sent to other parts of the EU. Customers can also receive online purchases they have ordered or parcels sent from another private individual. Returns and parcel storage are also available as additional services.
Kristi Unt, a member of Omniva’s management board, said, “Omniva has the largest network across the Baltics – 960 parcel machines in total – but the volume of parcel deliveries is growing and the expectation for new parcel machines remains high. We want to offer the best service close to home, and to this end we are installing more parcel machines and replacing the outdated ones with new ones. In the near future, we will install 10 more parcel machines, for which preparations are already underway. At the end of this year and next year, we will upgrade the Estonian network with 115 parcel machines, which includes replacing outdated ones and installing new ones.”
