“We have ambitious goals for this year, too. We want to grow further by tens of per cent. As far as turnover is concerned, we want to approach CZK 2 billion. Our goal in the number of consignments transported is to strive to reach 35 million. We also want to increase the number of pick-up points in our group to 5,000, with 3,500 in the Czech Republic. Our main goal is to become a global logistics platform within three years”
For Packeta Group, the owner of Zásilkovna, 2019 was a year of historic milestones. In April, the company launched the “Mezi Námi” (Between Us) service, which allows the shipment of consignments between individuals, meaning that the group entered a new market segment. In May, Packeta Group was the first company in central and eastern Europe to offer a Z-BOT robotic pick-up point to its customers, and transport of goods to all EU countries and to Russia was launched in July. Additionally, 3 new depots were opened in Prague, Ostrava, and Hradec Králové. Packeta acquired the Zavezu courier service in December.
