Ukrposhta sees UAH 500 mln in losses in March, intends to speed up delivery as much as possible

KYIV. May 3 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Income of the Ukrposhta company fell by about 50% in March, while the operator received about UAH 500 million in losses, but intends to expand the network as much as possible, CEO Igor Smelyansky said in an interview with the Ukrainian Witness video project.

"Yes, I won’t be able to return the pre-war time of delivery yet, but we can do the pre-war +1 day. We will expand the network every day. As soon as the curfews change, we will work longer hours," he said.

According to Smelyansky, about 1,000 branches of Ukrposhta currently have functional limitations. Of these, half are damaged branches, and the other half are located in temporarily uncontrolled territories.

The CEO of Ukrposhta also said that the directions of logistics are changing significantly – Lviv will process 10-12 times more shipments than before the war.

"We are already investing millions of hryvnias in a new temporary sorting center in Lviv, which will give us the opportunity to improve quality," he said.
