TALLINN – The Russia-based ride hailing platform Yandex.Taxi launched a parcel delivery service in Tallinn on Friday.
The service can be used by businesses to deliver orders to their customers and by individuals to exchange parcels. For delivery by Yandex, the parcel must be left on the back seat of the Yandex vehicle arriving to pick up the delivery, and collected from the vehicle by the recipient upon the arrival of the vehicle, Yandex said.
Users of the service must enter the recipient's phone number when ordering the service. The recipient will get an e-mail with a link to a web page where they can monitor the movement of the vehicle in real time.
The door-to-door option is available for an extra fee. In such case the parcel will be collected by the driver from a location at the door of the sender and left at the door of the address of the recipient.
