Inside this article
Smartpost is a shipping company owned by Itella Estonia that offers shipments by air, sea and road, including parcel delivery services.
Since 2007, Smartpost has created a shipping and delivery network with 200 parcel lockers and plenty of options for domestic and international shipments (to Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and other countries). Its wide range of services is likely why it was voted as the preferred shipping company for Estonians in 2021.
Smartpost offers two kinds of shipping rates and services, depending on the client (business or individual).
Domestic and international shipping
With Smartpost SmartKULLER’s service, you can ship your items in two ways:
- to a parcel locker or post office
- to a work or home address
This shipping option works six days a week (Monday to Saturday). Parcels will be delivered on the next day, except for shipments processed on Sundays and parcels shipped to small islands.
These delivery options are available only for Estonian and Finnish customers. For shipments across Europe, courier delivery may be more convenient —or the only option, in some cases.
This service is available from Tuesday to Friday. Parcels handed to couriers before 13:00 can be delivered on the same day.
SmartEXPRESS isn’t available on public holidays.
This service is available for Smartpost customers through a bank-card payment. The online store will need to pay the shipping costs and any additional charges for the cash-on-delivery service and Smartpost will transfer the amount back once the recipient collects and pays the shipment.
Parcels shipped with Smartpost can be returned with the same door code that was used for receiving the parcel in a locker, in the case of domestic orders.
This makes the return process easier for both the customer and the online store.
If you want to provide even simpler returns, use Outvio to create a customized portal where you can collect data about returned products, customers’ opinions and brand image. This data can then be used to further optimize the purchasing experience by, for example, fixing your sizing guide, discovering faults or developing new launches.
Smartpost prices: Shipping rates
Smartpost takes into consideration the dimensional weight of parcels rather than their weight.
In fact, the weight will be irrelevant as long as the package doesn’t weigh more than 35 kg.
