There will be more opportunities to receive and send parcels for Latvians in the regions.

With Christmas time approaching, when many people order gifts from internet shops or send them to relatives and friends in other Latvian towns, the international logistics company Omniva is expanding the parcel terminal network in six regional cities of Latvia in order to offer more opportunities to receive and send parcels in the regions.
Additional parcel terminals will be installed near six shopping centres in the regional cities Bauska, Dobele, Limbazi, Madona, Salaspils and Gulbene, where up to now Omniva parcel terminals were not available. One additional parcel terminal is installed in Jurmala as well as in Riga, near the shopping centre Bērnu pasaule.
 "The decision to increase the number of parcel terminals was taken due to the increasing popularity of the Omniva parcel terminals. More and more people choose to receive their parcels from internet stores in this way, therefore we need to satisfy the desire and needs of customers for a broader delivery network and invest in further development. This year the installation of 8 new parcel terminals required 365,000 EUR," indicates Joona Saluveer, Member of the Board of SIA Omniva.
Due to the expansion, we will please our customers with a special price of 1.99 EUR for parcels of any size between private persons during the whole first week of December. After the expansion the Omniva network consist of 46 parcel terminals, which are located in 22 cities of Latvia and will cover all big regional centres: Riga, Daugavpils, Liepaja, Jelgava, Cesis, Jekabpils, Jurmala, Ogre, Rezekne, Tukums, Valmiera, Ventspils, Talsi, Kuldiga, Saldus, Sigulda, Bauska, Dobele, Limbazi, Madona, Salaspils and Gulbene. This is to remind that the Omniva parcel terminal network in Latvia is connected with the Omniva parcel terminal network in Lithuania and Estonia, which consists of 188 parcel terminals in total.
The volume of dispatches has also increased due to the fact that the company Omniva established a significant range of cooperation partners, delivering to Omniva parcel terminals from various internet shops of Latvia. That caused growth of double the number of parcels during the first ten months of 2014 in comparison with the previous year. It is expected that the trend to use package terminals will become even stronger due to significant growth rates of e-commerce, as well as thanks to the possibility to send parcels from Omniva parcel terminals to 23 European countries via courier at a favourable price.
"For example, forecasts in Great Britain show that in 2016 approximately 23% of all purchases will be made online, while global internet commerce growth is estimated in the amount of 20%. Taking into account the fact that the volume of internet purchases in the Baltics is still 3-4 times smaller than in the rest of Europe, there is particularly high potential for development here," says J. Saluveer.
