Estonian logistics company Omniva acquires Parcelsea, smart parcel box startup
Omniva has acquired Parcelsea, the Tallinn-based parcel vending machine company. With the transaction, Omniva will acquire Parcelsea’s network of 700 smart parcel boxes and plans to expand it to all Baltic countries.
- Omniva is an international post and logistics company based in Tallinn that targets the Baltic States. Omniva brings goods bought online from faraway countries, to the shopper’s home, a nearby post office or to the parcel machine. The company claims it is the biggest service provider in the Baltic region. Currently, Omniva has about 2500 employees.
- Launched in 2020, Parcelsea provides the pickup locker that accepts packages, groceries, and food deliveries. The solution is available for rental or buyout and is integration-free. Now, Parcelsea manages a network of 700 smart parcel boxes. On April 2023, Parcelsea acquired Cleveron’s network of private parcel machines.
“The good news is that by using the Omniva service, customers will be able to order a parcel to their smart parcel box at home for the price of a delivery to a parcel machine. This strategic collaboration between Omniva and Parcelsea marks a new era of enhanced and accessible parcel services in Estonia and beyond. By leveraging Parcelsea’s smart parcel boxes, Omniva is set to bring the future of parcel delivery closer to home, making it more personalized and affordable”,Mait Mikker, head of business development of Omniva, commented.
- The amount of the fresh deal was undisclosed, but Omniva has secured the rights to expand the network of smart boxes in all Baltic countries. Access to the smart boxes will continue to be open, which means that all courier companies operating in Estonia will be able to deliver goods to them. Omniva smart parcel box rental service will start from July.
