The Nova Poshta Group (Kyiv), operating in the express delivery segment, opened 49 new depots in August 2018.
According to a company press release, the total number of depots across the country grew to 2,440.
“In August, 49 depots were opened: 13 mini departments accepting parcels weighing up to 15 kg, 23 depots for sending parcels weighing up to 30 kg, and 13 depots unlimited by weight,” the company said.
New branches appeared in Kyiv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Ternopil, Kharkiv and other large cities, as well as in smaller towns – in Nadvirna, Bakhmut, Enerhodar, Ichnia, Baturin and others.
In addition, the company has changed the locations of 18 already operating branches to more convenient ones in different cities of Ukraine in order to reduce the load on the branches.
Nova Poshta also continued its partnership with retail supermarket networks.
The Auchan Ukraine network has four pick-up and drop-off points in Kyiv and it is planned to expand into all 23 stores.
Nova Poshta opens new depots in the Leroy Merlin network in Kyiv; the Lotok network has more than 10 pick-up and drop-off points around the city.
According to the company’s report, in January-July 2018, Nova Poshta customers in the e-commerce market sent 19.2 million items, which is almost 27% more than in the same period of 2017.
