“I’m very pleased to receive this decision and excited to get to work shaping the future of Instabee. Our ambition is clear, to grow internationally and to do it with a healthy profit. My first task will be to get to know the team at Instabox and look under the hood of all the great solutions they have created" says Fredrik Hamilton, CEO of Instabee.

Instabox and Budbee effort to reduce CO2

As a joint entity, Budbee and Instabox have promised to create a more efficient and sustainable operations flow. By using fewer vehicles and terminals to deliver parcels, the pace toward a minimized CO2 footprint is accelerated.

This fusion is part of a growing trend of alliances between logistics companies from Europe, with the goal of increasing sustainability, and profitability and catering to an ever-growing e-commerce demand for logistics.

Instabox’s founder and new Executive Chairman of Instabee, Alexis Priftis, comments:

“We expect to see better economies of scale for Instabee, resulting in better financial and sustainability outcomes. I see great potential for us going forward, both short and long term, and know we will be well-positioned to create something extraordinary.”
