We transported 379,000 packages in a single day, breaking last year’s record by 88%
Record-breaking Christmas sales reflected in figures recorded by Zásilkovna, the leading Czech technology-logistics company. On Monday, 16 December, Zásilkovna transported 379,000 consignments, which is an 88% increase when compared to the previous year. At the same time, it means the greatest number of consignments transported on a single day in the whole history of Zásilkovna. A dense network of nearly 2,700 pick-up points throughout the Czech Republic helped Zásilkovna successfully manage the Christmas shopping. Several days before Christmas Eve, pick-up points were the best way to get all presents delivered to their recipients in time.
“The importance of personal pick-ups at pick-up points increases in the last few days before Christmas Eve, because pick-up points are where our customers find the greatest certainty of having their presents delivered on time. According to a survey by the Association of E-commerce, interest in home delivery of goods has been decreasing in the last five years.”
