Nova Poshta (Nova Post) has opened a post office in Vilnius in Lithuania, marking its second European branch outside Ukraine.
The branch has opened as a cargo department for sending and receiving parcels weighing up to 1,000kg from Ukraine. It is intended to enable Ukrainians in Lithuania to easily send and receive items from relatives in Ukraine. The branch will be open every day of the week and is expected to have a delivery time of approximately five working days.
Petro Beshta, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the Republic of Lithuania, visited the new office and was the first to send a greeting card to Ukraine. “The full-scale war became a difficult test for Ukrainian business. But even in spite of daily challenges, Ukrainian business shows great adaptability, stability and indomitability,” he said.
“Some continue to work under shelling, and some have found opportunities for business relocation within Ukraine. And there are those that managed to expand and enter new European markets. A vivid example was the Ukrainian company Nova Post. The flexibility and stability demonstrated by Nova Post prove that cooperation with Ukrainian business is a risk-free investment opportunity for foreign investors.”
Volodymyr Popereshniuk, co-founder of Nova Post, said, “Our states do not have a common border, and our peoples are not ethnically and linguistically related. However, it was Lithuania that received more than 70,000 Ukrainians when the full-scale war began, which is like the population of an entire city in Ukraine. We are very grateful to the Lithuanian people and government for the large-scale support of Ukraine in our fight against Russian aggression.
“We are honored to do business in Lithuania. I am sure that Nova Post has something to surprise Lithuanians and will become a reliable partner and support for our future customers here. We’re fast, we’re reliable, we’re flexible and customer-focused, and we don’t plan to stop. Therefore, we will open a branch in the city of Kaunas in May, so that even more people can use fast delivery from Nova Post. In addition, this year we will enter the market of Estonia and Latvia.”
