Viljandi-based technology company Cleveron has signed contracts with three new US distributors to expand its sales, installation and on-site maintenance capabilities in the North America. Cleveron’s new distributors Lozier+CASI, Luxer One and Telaid are all established companies within the US retail industry, with the largest retail players in their client portfolio.
Parcel pickup automation solution provider Cleveron has been active in the USA for more than five years, since the country’s e-commerce market has been steadily growing for years. During the pandemic, the US e-commerce saw a tremendous growth, the retailer’s interest towards pickup automation has grown significantly and this has provided Cleveron an opportunity to expands its business in the region. Cleveron’s solutions turn parcel pickup into a self-service, which saves time for both retailers and end-customers; they also help to save on costs.
“In the US, our main client is the world’s largest retailer who is open to test advanced technological solutions. But in other conversations we often saw that despite parcel lockers and robots being very common in Estonia, parcel lockers even being the most preferred delivery method here, they were still considered a thing of the future in the States,” explained CEO of Cleveron, Arno Kütt. “Today, due to the pandemic, the US e-commerce market has jumped five years into the future within just a couple of months, and the retailers are very interested in technologies which will help to make parcel handling more effective. Having local and experienced distributors with an already developed client portfolio will help us to expand our footprint there,” said Kütt.
Cleveron has selected three renowned US companies, Lozier+CASI, Luxer One and Telaid, as distributors in North America since all three companies have extensive experience in the local retail sector and have proven to be experts in their fields. In addition to selling Cleveron’s products, the companies will also be installing them and providing on-site maintenance.
