The European Investment Bank (EIB) has selected PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) at a tender to design a new logistic chain of PJSC Ukrposhta, Ukraine’s Infrastructure Ministry reported last week. “At the end of the project an investment case would be created and it could be financed by the EIB jointly with other international institutions,” the ministry said.
According to the report, in six months, international advisors will develop several projects for the restructuring of the logistics network of Ukrposhta, which today consists of 35 sorting centers and more than 200 transport bases.
“It is important that these cases of the project will be immediately considered and defended with the technical specialists of the EIB from Luxembourg as one of the potential investors,” First Deputy CEO of Ukrposhta Oleksandr Petsovsky said.
The EIB does not disclose the amount for which the contract will be concluded.
As reported, in June, the EIB announced a tender for the selection of a consultant for the modernization of the logistics network of PJSC Ukrposhta with an estimated cost of EUR 400,000.
