The state-owned postal service Eesti Post has announced that it is expanding to Lithuania where it will be installing a total of 35 automated outdoor parcel terminals in cities and towns throughout the nation.

The self-service machines, which operate around the clock, will allow users to send packages to any other parcel terminal within the country. The option of courier deliveries will also become available in the near future, Anis Arumeel, head of the postal service's Logistics Division, said in an Eesti Post statement. In addition, customers can easily track their packages online, he said.

So far, the machines have already been installed in the towns of Alytus, Marijampole and Mezheikiai. The rest will set up in Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda and Siauliai this week. The terminals will be opened to the public by the end of this month, Eesti Post said.

According to Arumeel, the final goal is to establish a network of such parcel terminals across the Baltics, thereby allowing self-service package deliveries between the three countries.
