Large parcels of money
“The investment we are planning shows how serious Advent’s Polish involvement is,” says MD Nick Rose
POLAND InPost, which is owned by the American fund Advent International, has announced that it will invest up to PLN 250 mln in its Polish parcel locker infrastructure and its courier services this year.

InPost’s plans also include expanding its sorting facilities and investment in new sorting lines for its branches, along with the development of its courier network, modern courier equipment, warehouse scanners, transport cages and rolling containers as well as IT tools for the optimisation of courier zones.

“The investment we are planning shows how serious Advent’s involvement in the Polish logistics market is and our fund’s faith in its excellent prospects. As part of the development of the InPost network, we will be implementing new delivery standards and tools for delivery optimisation,” announced Nick Rose, a member of the supervisory board of Integer.pl group (the owner of InPost), and a partner and the managing director of Advent International.

InPost currently has a network of more than 3,500 parcel lockers across Poland. In the first five months of this year, InPost delivered 30 mln items – a 42.2 pct increase y-o-y (parcel lockers were expanded by 41.2 pct and the InPost courier service by 43.4 pct).

“With the support of the Advent International fund, we will accelerate our technological development and introduce new innovations. We now have advanced IT technology that accelerates the delivery of shipments while our couriers have modern devices such as GPS, scanners and tablets. With such high efficiency, we can keep increasing supported volumes to an impressive degree,” adds Rafał Brzoska, the CEO of InPost.

According to a report by Gemius, the e-commerce market in Poland grew by 15–20 pct last year.
