Panattoni has started the implementation of two sorting plants for DPD Polska. They will be built as part of Panattoni Park Gdańsk Airport and Panattoni Park Poznań X, each of which will have an area of approximately 3,600 sqm. The tenant will start operating in spring 2021.

The KEP market (courier, express and parcel) is growing rapidly. At the end of March this year companies in this industry recorded a turnover 20% higher than at the beginning of the year, which translated into growing interest and demand for warehouse space. This is confirmed by DPD Polska - part of DPD group, the second-largest international courier network in Europe - which is expanding its operations by two new locations within Panattoni's logistics complexes. Sorting plants with approx. 3,600 sqm each will be built at Panattoni Park Poznań X and Panattoni Park Gdańsk Airport. Adequate process efficiency will be ensured by a sorting system tailored to the customer's needs, and their efficient operation will be guaranteed by numerous gates at level "0" as well as comfortable manoeuvring areas. Construction works will be completed in spring 2021. Greater Poland and Pomeranian investments are not the only projects implemented by Panattoni for the DPD Polska. In October 2019, the companies extended their lease agreements for facilities with a total area of over 10,000 sqm at Panattoni Park Sosnowiec II and Panattoni Park Kraków III.

“In 2019, the number of parcels in Poland exceeded half a billion, and according to forecasts, it will increase to even 850 million in 2023. The volume of shipments may increase even more if current development of the industry will be maintained,” comments Michał Samborski, Head of Development at Panattoni.
