Starting from Wednesday it is possible for residents of Estonia and Finland to send Smartpost packages to the neighbouring country’s high-tech distribution facilities and post offices.
Itella Smartpost said that the new service has generated great interest among business clients, the large proportion of which are international e-tradesmen. “The exchange of packages with Finland opens new opportunities both for private consumers as well as for catalogue department stores and e-tradesmen,” managing director of Itella Smartpost Risto Eelmaa said. He said that the most popular goods Estonians buy from Finland are clothes and home electronics.
The cost of sending the smallest package to the other country’s Smartpost distribution facility is 10 euros and of the biggest one 14 euros. The prices are slightly higher on sending parcels to Finnish post offices.
In Finland, Smartpost has 50 and in Estonia 52 distribution facilities. Via Smartpost it is possible to send parcels from Estonia to 1 050 Finnish post offices. This year Itella will extend its parcel distribution facilities network to 100.
