Polish postal service eyes expanding cooperation with Amazon


Amazon launched its Polish domain on Tuesday, and Polish state-owned postal service Poczta Polska expects to broaden mutual cooperation.

"The launch of the Polish version of the platform means an expansion of our cooperation and an opportunity to significantly increase the volume of parcels handled by Poczta Polska," the company said in a Wednesday press release.

“Cooperation with e-commerce firms is a strategic activity for the company”, president of Poczta Polska, Tomasz Zdzikot said as quoted in the press release. He added that by 2024, Poczta Polska wants to double its revenues from courier services.

According to the press release, Poczta Polska's business strategy for 2021–2023 envisages intensive growth of courier services. Currently, the development areas, which include courier, digital and logistics services, generate less than 20 percent of the company's revenues.

The strategy also assumes the development of the network of collection points. By 2022, their number is to increase to 20,000 from the current 13,600. This year, the operator will launch 500 automatic parcel pick-up machines, with 2,000 planned for next year.
