ParcelSea: We want to offer a smart mailbox that is always at home
Estonian startup ParcelSea, based in Tallinn, has raised €935,000 ($1,13 million) to build its smart mailbox network in Estonia and foreign markets.
ParcelSea plans to use the funding to expand production and continue building new features and services, such as freezer department for food, parcel delivery and return and various smart home solutions.
The funding round was led by Superangel and in addition to venture capital funds (Superangel and United Angels) the primary investors include successful Estonian start-up founders such as Taavi Madiberk (Skeleton Technologies), Kristjan Vilosius (Katana MRP), Taavi Tamkivi (Salv), Triin Hertmann and Alvar Lumberg (Grünfin) and many others.
ParcelSea smart mailbox is a personal locker for parcel deliveries, that accepts packages in a secure and contact-free way. It’s made of 3 sections and fits various package sizes, letters, and up to 5 grocery bags.
ParcelSea currently focuses on private-, terraced and semi-detached houses. “We want to offer a smart home mailbox that is always at home and ready to accept all packages, food and friend-to-friend goods without human contact” said the CEO and co-founder Andres Sampka. “Today, there are more packages delivered home than letters or newspapers. Ordinary mailboxes are often sitting empty,” added CTO and co-founder Indrek Jürgenson.
