E-trade Boosts Mail Volumes

Oct 31, 2013

Based on the estimations of Lithuania Post’s subsidiary company Baltic Post, managing the LP EXPRESS brand, the number of items delivered within the first two weeks of October is same as that during September. The greatest impact on the growing number of items is made by e-trade.

Director of Baltic Post Domas Sabaitis said:

“E-trade is spreading rapidly in Lithuania. More and more online shops start activities. At present, we cooperate with more than 200 online shops, and LP EXPRESS couriers deliver items both domestically and to other countries. Since the beginning of our activities, every month the number of items increases by 2-3 times.”

According to D. Sabaitis, the new delivery option, mainly the self-service parcel terminals LP EXPRESS 24, haves an impact on the number of items. The majority of items purchased from online sellers are delivered via these terminals.

Erika Paulauskė, the founder of the portal www.tarpmergaiciu.lt, said that the visitors of the portal have already discovered the advantages of the terminals. E. Paulauskė said, “In our portal, we have integrated the LP EXPRESS 24 items registration system enabling the members of tarpmergaiciu.lt to have their items sent at any time. It is also convenient for the buyers who receive their goods in a short time. In the opinion of the members, the service is needful, convenient, competitive, and reliable.”

One of the most significant advantages of LP EXPRESS 24 is that the terminals are operational 24/7. Residents and businesses can use the service at any time convenient to them.

When using the terminals, neither the sender nor the addressee must keep to the business hours of post offices or couriers, and there is no need for calling to agree on collection of the item. It is not only convenient; it also enables to save time and money.

One more advantage is the price. It depends upon the size, not weight. LP EXPRESS 24 terminals can be used for sending items not only within Lithuania, but to other countries as well. At present, items via the terminals can be sent to 22 European countries.

UAB Baltic Post is a subsidiary company of Lithuania Post providing items delivery service. Baltic Post carries its activities under the brand name LP EXPRESS. The company also runs the self-service parcel terminals LP EXPRESS 24.
