Ukrainian postal and courier company Nova Poshta will launch business branches serving corporate clients in every regional center in the Ukraine in 2022, alongside the deployment of 1,000 consumer branches across the country.
The business branches will enable corporate customers to send and receive parcels and package items and will also offer financial services. Nova Poshta piloted this initiative in Cherkasy, Ukraine, in December 2021.
Currently, more than 11,000 parcel terminals have already been installed across different cities in Ukraine. In 2021, branches opened in the Lviv, Ternopil, Vinnitsa, Khmelnytsky and Ivano-Frankivsk regions; approximately 7,000 of these are located in villages, meaning that the company is represented in every city, district center and every fourth village. Throughout this deployment, Nova Poshta paid particular attention to parcel lockers as a contactless delivery channel, installing them in shops, gas stations and shopping malls.
Alexander Bulba, CEO of Nova Poshta, said, “Continuous network expansion is one of our strategic objectives. Every year we strive to be closer to our clients. When we just started, we planned that every Ukrainian could get to the nearest Nova Poshta office within 5-10 minutes on foot. In 2021 alone, we opened 1,600 new branches and installed more than 9,000 parcel terminals. When opening branches, we always follow our strategy – high speed of delivery, availability and high-quality service.”
