Posti setting up Baltics pickup point network

Finland’s Posti Group is building up a pickup point network in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. In a statement issued last week, Posti said that the network will encompass 1,200 item pickup points and will be the largest “pickup point” (aka parcel shop) network in the Baltic countries.

Riku Kuusisto, the head of Posti’s parcel services and the service point network, commented: “We will introduce the pickup point concept, which has been tried and tested in Finland, in order to strengthen our parcel services in the Baltic countries.

“The pickup point network opens an excellent channel for Finnish companies and especially online stores to serve Baltic customers. Established at shops and kiosks, the new pickup points offer consumers generous opening hours and a convenient way of picking up parcels.”

Posti Group already has a home delivery service in the Baltic countries; and in Estonia, it has a network of 85 parcel points. Posti Group has been present in the Baltic countries under the name Itella Logistics since 2006.

Posti is building up its pickup point network through partnerships with established retail chains including Topo centras (in Lithuania), Aibe (Lithuania and Latvia), Pastastacija (Latvia) and R-kiosk (Estonia). R-kiosks already offer postal services in 112 service points in Finland.

“The first items were received from the new pickup points in January,” said Posti. “The pickup point network will be further expanded in the Baltic countries with new partnerships.”
