Posti Group is nearly 400 years old and is owned by the state of Finland. It has four business groups (postal services, parcel and logistics services, Itella Russia, OpusCapita) and the company operates in Finland, Estonia, Russia, Sweden, Norway, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Switzerland and the United States.
The Finnish-Estonian cooperation began in 2010, when Posti acquired the Estonian SmartPOST, which was known for its innovative approach to last mile delivery. The merger was motivated by the need to develop their business and to meet the needs of the growing e-commerce (the annual growth in parcel volumes is 39%). Acquiring SmartPOST offered Posti the possibility to expand their business to the Estonian market. They are using Cleveron 302 parcel lockers in both Finland and Estonia.
