Omniva reports growth in parcel volumes

Estonia-based Omniva has reported that it has seen a significant increase in parcel volumes, with online orders from overseas websites being a particularly strong growth area. In a statement issued on 20 January, Omniva Group – whose members include AS Eesti Post (aka Estonia Post) – said: “In the last weeks of the previous year [2015], the number of parcels delivered by Omniva multiplied in comparison with the ordinary numbers; almost half of the volume was made up by deliveries from foreign online stores.”

Sten Argos, the Head of Parcels Department of Omniva, commented: ““More than half of the maxi letters come from abroad, indicating that people like ordering goods from other countries. In turn, almost half of the foreign deliveries come from China.”

As previously reported by Post&Parcel, Omniva announced in September 2015 that it was setting up a new joint enterprise – called Post11 – with the Chinese courier firm S.F. Express.

The Omniva statement from 20 January added: “Compared to the usual numbers, the parcel volume [for Christmas 2015]  had doubled or even tripled, and compared to the Christmas of 2014, the number of parcel deliveries had increased by approximately 10%.”
