Since forming after the Soviet Union collapse in 1991, Estonia has forged an identity as a tech-savvy Baltic nation that is creating innovations that are revolutionizing communications, file-sharing, e-commerce and government.
Now you can add Cleveron, a postal technology innovation company from Viljandi, Estonia, to that list. Cleveron is known as a game-changer with its intelligent parcel delivery solutions, such as the Cleverbox and PackRobot, and we were thrilled to join the Cleveron team last week, as it celebrated its 10-year anniversary.
Bell and Howell has been Cleveron’s exclusive distributor for the U.S. market since September 2015. We have come a long way together in that short period. The following are highlights of this great partnership:
