Omniva set to make parcel locker rounds ‘multiple times a day’
Omniva has announced it will start filling and emptying most of its parcel machines several times a day.
The new increased service will take effect from tomorrow (1 August). The most popular machines in Tallinn will also get an extra third serving round to provide even faster parcel service.
“With the new service logic, we will be able to issue about 20% more parcels via the parcel lockers in 24 hours,” said Omniva Parcel Machine Network Manager Evert Rööpson.
He added that the parcel volume growth has been rapid and consistent over the past years. To tackle this, Omniva also has a new logistics centre, but to increase the capability even more, changes must be made in the distribution network as well.
The Omniva website will now display only the times when the parcel machines are emptied. The parcel machines will be filled during the day, and on most occasions, even several times a day.
According to Rööpson, the practice that will be adopted is usually practiced during Christmas time.
“We will start monitoring the level of use of each parcel machine and if we notice that any parcel machine is extra popular, then we will empty and fill it even several times a day,” Rööpson said.
Omniva has nearly 250 parcel machines in Estonia and over 550 across the Baltic States.
