ParcelSea to scale smart mailboxes to new markets
After raising close to €1M, Estonian startup ParcelSea is looking to build its smart mailbox network in Estonia and foreign markets.
ParcelSea are planning to use the funding to expand the production, services and features of their smart mailboxes to give customers better access to secure and contact-free parcel deliveries. The parcel locker’s current stand-out features are innovative design, integration-free and open solution approach, which means that all couriers and grocery stores can leave their packages. It also makes peer-to-peer sharing economy much easier. No special application is required to use the box.
“We want to offer a smart home mailbox that is always at home and ready to accept all packages, food and friend-to-friend goods without human contact.”
“It took us only 4 months to bring the concept to a fully functioning solution. The biggest challenge was deciding for the most simple and reliable solution out of all the good ideas and also keep the minimalist design. From the first day the goal was to test the product in a real environment with real customers and courier companies. Many thanks to all our pilot customers for their valuable feedback. We’ve made several changes in the product based on that”.
– Andres Sampka, CEO and co-founder, ParcelSea
The innovation of parcel boxes is interesting because it takes a service that we already know works, and offers it in a way that gives customers more a more personalised experience.
At the end of the summer, the first pilot projects begin in the foreign markets in Finland and Sweden. The long-term plan is to have smart mailboxes all around the world and to support the image of Estonia’s innovative digital state with another success story.
