Omniva ramping up parcel locker network
Omniva has announced that is has started expanding its Baltic parcel locker network this week.
During the pre-Christmas network expansion, 63 new parcel lockers will be added to the Baltic network and 100 existing parcel lockers will be expanded. Eight new parcel locker terminals will be installed in Estonia, 30 in Latvia and 25 in Lithuania. Additionally, at least 37 parcel locker terminals in Estonia and another 100 across the rest of the Baltics will be expanded.
In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (20 November) Omniva Board Member Ansi Arumeel said that the parcel locker expansion is gaining extra momentum. In total, over the next 5 years, Omniva will invest more than €20m into expanding their Baltic parcel locker network. In September, the company selected three suppliers in the framework of an international procurement; these suppliers will be providing parcel lockers to Omniva in the future.
“Next year, we can expand the network with new parcel lockers even quicker,” confirmed Arumeel. “The opportunity to purchase different types of parcel lockers will help us bring our services even closer to people.
“By Christmas, Estonia will have a total of 132 Omniva parcel machines, which will be the largest parcel machine in Estonia and in the Baltics. If we add post offices to those, there will be 444 pick-up points in Estonia.”
