This year, the title was awarded to Omniva’s subsidiary company Post11, which organises international e-commerce.
While resenting the award, Tõnis Hintsov, the Chairman of the Board of PROLOG, added that Post11 has been a successful implementer of the concept of bringing Asian e-goods to Europe. In fact, Post11 has been extremely successful in this regard – the company has created a distribution centre of Asian products in Estonia and has exported this concept outside of Estonia with great success as well. “Although Post11 has not managed to make up for the tonnes of coal transit that Estonia has lost, the number of shipments is significantly higher thanks to the activities of Post11 and Estonia is still seen as a part of the Asian-European silk road,” said Hintsov.
Gunnar Aru, the Head of Operations at Post11, commented when accepting the award that whereas in the past, the logistics service has been conducted primarily B2B, it is transforming more into a B2C service. “Get ready for this so that there can be more companies like Post11 in Estonia,” recommended Aru.
