-28°C in chilly Lithuania: KEBA machines withstand harshest weather conditions

Linz, (PresseBox) - Starting in October 2011, Kautra, a passenger carrier company, has established the widest network of self-service parcel terminals with more than 70 units in Lithuania together with Lithuania Post. Since reliability, safety and premium quality were crucial criteria for Kautra, they have chosen KEBA, the Austrian systems provider, to fulfill their demands.

And truly, since the start of the project, KEBA machines, named SIUNTOS24 in Lithuania, have proven their high-quality levels: In February, Lithuania experienced sharp frost with minus 28°C. The city of Druskininkai even reached a record value of minus 32°C. Still, Linas Skardžiukas, CEO of Kautra, is confident of KEBA, “What I want to say is: ALL KEBA machines are working perfectly! Respect to the KEBA engineers and designers!”

The KePol parcel machines are installed in 44 cities across the country, with the last terminals about to go-live within the next weeks. Further expansion of the network driven by the growing demand of customers and increasing parcel volume due to e-commerce can be expected. As Linas Skardžiukas continues, “KEBA machines are the most modern and innovative self-service machines, already in use in several European countries.”

KEBA has the world’s largest installation base with some thousand KePol parcel machines. This fact as well as ten years experience in different parts of the world makes KEBA a true consultant with profound know-how and experience in automated solutions for the first and last mile. In 2011 alone, some hundred machines have been installed and put into operation – an amount that no other manufacturer has ever achieved in one year.

Groundbreaking projects as with Kautra in chilly Lithuania and other important customers in Russia, Dubai or Luxembourg made 2011 another “hot” year for KEBA’s KePol.
