Poczta Polska plans to establish a handling centre within the area of the CPK Airport. CPK and railway investments will help ensure high quality of the services provided by Poczta Polska and allow optimum use to be made of the potential of a growing e-commerce market. The Poczta Polska and CPK companies have signed a cooperation agreement today.
Currently, Poczta Polska has a post office and a handling point at the Chopin Airport in Warsaw, where it operates air shipments in international traffic. Taking into account the dynamic development of the KEPindustry (courier, express and parcel shipments), e-commerce (Internet commerce) and the logistics industry in broad sense, Poczta Polska plans to create in the area of the CPK Airport a logistics hub for handling goods in national and foreign traffic.
This is a good message for anyone who buys or sells goods online. Precisely planned infrastructure, taking into account the experience of logistics operators, will mean not only comfortable journeys, but also quick and safe transport of goods. Therefore, the construction of the CPK carried out in cooperation with Poczta Polska is so important.
The construction of the CPK is one of the most important infrastructure projects in our country and the National Postal Operator may not be lacking therein. Poczta Polska deals not only with letter shipments, but also, among others, with handling a dynamically growing e-commerce market and the market of logistics services. We are constantly working intensively to expand and improve our logistics network to meet market requirements and customer expectations. Since centuries, Poczta Polska has been a communication circulatory system for the state and citizens. Joint infrastructure design by Poczta Polska and CPK will enable to improvethe logistics of shipments
The CPK company undertook to take into account the needs of Poczta Polska while planning, designing and implementing airport and railway investments as well as co-ordinating road projects.
Poczta Polska, as the largest logistics operator in Central and Eastern Europe, is a key partner for us during the construction of the CPK Airport. The cooperation agreement signed today aims at work coordination and joint investments. Establishing close cooperation already at the planning stage of the airport and new high-speed railway lines will allow for the development of optimum solutions. Together, we will achieve more using the economies of scale
The cooperation agreement provides for, among others, prioritisation when planning the CPK investments. It also provides for support from Poczta Polska in preparation of design documentation, consultation of proposals for necessary legal acts and development of the area of innovation and new technologies at the interface of activities of Poczta Polska and CPK.
Poczta Polska is currently rebuilding its logistics network due to the intensive development of e-commerce. We want to move forward quickly, taking advantage of, among others, the infrastructure potentialof the CPK. New, better handling infrastructure will translate into increased efficiency of handling of shipments that arrive to Poland from abroad, as well as those that the Poles, including Polish e-shops, send to other countries.
It is yet another cooperation agreement signed by the CPK company. In March this year, CPK and the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA) concluded an agreement concerning the coordination of investments, among others, the extension of the A2 motorway between Łódź and Warsaw and the construction of the Warsaw Metropolitan Area Ring Road. Two months later, representatives of Poland and the UK signed an agreement whereby the British aviation and railway sector offered know-how in the planning, design and construction of the CPK Airport and 1,800 km of high-speed railway lines.
In September this year, CPK signed an agreement with Polska Grupa Energetyczna, which stipulates that a new combined heat andpower plant will be constructed in the area of the CPK Airport in accordance with the latest environmental requirements. On the basis of the signed agreements, CPK also cooperates, among others, with the Polish Geological Institute (PIG) in the field of engineering geology, hydrogeology and subsoil survey.
