We believe that digital postal services make life easier for both the sender and the recipient, while at the same time contributing to a more sustainable world. Over 1 billion envelopes are sent every year, in Sweden alone. We think that there’s a better, faster, more secure and more environmentally friendly way to do this. That’s why we created Kivra.
