In September, Omniva will open an international hub in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan for accepting and sorting cross border e-commerce parcels. Omniva is the first postal operator to open a hub in Central Asia.
‘We are delighted to open a new hub in the region.

The new hub in Central Asia will allow Omniva to transport international parcels more efficiently compared to the current logistic set up. In addition, it will also reduce our ecological footprint,’ said Sven Kukemelk, VP International Business in Omniva.
