InPost wants to open over dozen logistics hubs all over Poland
Delivery platform for e-commerce InPost will launch over a dozen more logistics hubs throughout Poland. The facilities will be built this year in Rzeszów, Wrocław, Poznań, Wałbrzych, Katowice, Tychy, Radzymin, Siedlce, Kalisz, Koszalin and Szczecin.
In total, it will be over 100,000 sqm of new space within the InPost infrastructure. Panattoni will build over 75,500 sqm of this space for InPost. All facilities will be launched this year.
Currently, the company supports over 11,000 Paczkomaty® in Poland and courier services based on over 60 logistics centers, including two central sorting plants in Piotrków Trybunalski and P3 Logistic Parks Mszczonów.
"We have been the leader in leasing logistics space in Poland for two years, but our infrastructure will grow exponentially this year. In 2020, we doubled the turnover and volume of shipments we handle and this year promises to be even better. Poland with the largest network of Paczkomaty® from all countries in Europe and a gigantic logistics base will be a model for our international development. Our model is unique on a global scale and very difficult to counterfeit. I can say that most likely there is no such player in the whole of Europe – and it takes many years of work and gigantic investments to catch up with us. Now our potential will increase additionally thanks to the new Paczkomaty® factory, which will be launched in the middle of the year, and the planned acquisition of Mondial Relay – a French company with an extensive network of 15,800 pick-up and drop-off points," Rafał Brzoska, president of InPost, said.
"Our cooperation shows the trend on the market – by courier companies investing in an increasing number of regional distribution centers – also in smaller centers – in order to improve delivery efficiency both in terms of costs and delivery time. And this would not have been possible without Panattoni's experience and innovators such as Inpost," Marek Dobrzycki, managing director Panattoni, added.
