Postal services of Estonia and Kazakhstan will jointly develop e-commerce

Omniva, the national postal operator of Estonia and Kazpost JSC, the national postal operator of the Republic of Kazakhstan, have signed a memorandum of cooperation on e-commerce issues.

The parties intend to ensure safe delivery of parcels from marketplaces using the transit potential of Kazakhstan, the operational and commercial experience of Kazpost, access to Omniva’s global customers and partners, delivery and reception centers in the European Union and the United States.

Partnership is aimed at developing the transit potential of Kazakhstan, the growing interest of Kazpost in e-commerce as a strategic business direction, the use of Omniva technologies for cross-border operations at parcel storage and sorting hubs.

"Background of Omniva is a sucessful transformation from ex-Soviet background to world leading tech and e-commerce company in the postal sphere. We see exact same potential in Central Asia and we believe that in strategic cooperation with Kazpost we are able to make change happen in all of Central Asia. Through this partnership people in Kazakhstan and Central Asia more widely will have access to leading e-commerce platforms globally,“ said Mart Mägi, CEO of Omniva. 

"Kazpost has a developed ecosystem for e-commerce — a bond warehouse, 208 parcel supermarkets across the country, more than 3,500 couriers, a virtual address service, and a mobile app. Moreover, the status of an economic representative of Kazpost makes it possible to save time and resources during customs clearance. All this allows to reduce delivery time. Bearing in mind the significant role of the last mile in supply chain, we focus on collaboration with international partners.  Therefore, cooperation with the Estonian postal service and their transport and logistics resources is important for us,“ said Assel Zhanasova, CEO of Kazpost JSC.
