Over the next five years, VOOL will supply Omniva with 300 electric vehicle chargers installed throughout Estonia to enable couriers to use electric vehicles for their work. The first approximately 50 chargers will be installed this year in Tallinn, Tartu, Kuressaare, and Rakvere. Omniva aims for at least half its fleet to operate on renewable energy by 2030.
Omniva's goal is to make its services sustainable, so we are gradually transitioning to environmentally friendly fuels and optimizing routes to avoid empty trips. At the same time, we are increasing our fleet of electric vehicles. These initiatives significantly reduce our environmental footprint,

Although electric vehicles currently make up just under 10% of Omniva's vehicle fleet, there are plans to actively increase their number in collaboration with VOOL in the coming years. Currently, there are 52 electric cars and 15 Vok electric bikes used by couriers. Omniva plans to test alternative vehicles from the Norwegian company Paxster and other providers in the coming year to find the most suitable solutions for its needs.
VOOL is a company that started operations a few years ago, producing smart electric vehicle chargers capable of maximizing electricity from the grid, allowing users to charge their own cars and sell electricity to other drivers. VOOL's charger can monitor market prices and charge the vehicle when it is most cost-effective. The company's mobile app works not only with VOOL's products but also with other chargers.

Acting quickly in Estonia, being a small country, can give us a competitive advantage in transitioning to electric vehicles
