Nova Poshta has opened three more regional terminals, each capable of processing 120 parcels a minute.

With each facility estimated to cost $1.5 million, terminals have opened in Chernivtsi, Slavyansk and Vinnytsia. A total of 209 jobs were created. Earlier this year, the privately owned delivery company opened similar centers in Cherkasy and Mykolaiv and doubled its center in Kyiv. Last year, Nova Poshta’s profit rose 27% for $36 million.

Ukrposhta has posted on ProZorro a tender for a partner in construction of a $50 million modern sorting center in Kyiv.

This will be the first such construction by the state postal operator in 42 years, Ukrposhta director Igor Smelyansky wrote on Facebook. Ukrposhta is undertaking a decade long logistic renovation program that will involve constructing six major sorting centers and 62 depots. To jumpstart the program, the EBRD is the lead finance partner, lending €63 million and the European Investment Bank is also lending €30 million to Ukrposhta.
