The new facility in Stryków, which at the same time is the largest project of its kind in the company's history to be undertaken in Central & Eastern Europe, will combine the functionality of a reloading centre and a distribution hub for shipments of various sizes, so as to meet the growing demand from the market on a regular basis. It will total nearly 13 thousand sqm of space, which is equivalent to two full-size football pitches. The complex will be equipped with cutting-edge technology, making it possible to sort 15 thousand parcels per hour.
- Panattoni Europe's facility for UPS Poland in Stryków is being built in a strategic location for domestic and international distribution. This is because of its central location in the country and the proximity of major transportation routes - A2 motorway junction, as well as road no 71 near the national route no 14. The fact that an industry leader, such as UPS, has chosen our location shows that we understand the needs of freight forwarders - said Marek Dobrzycki, Managing Director for Western Poland, Panattoni Europe , - This understanding stems from Panattoni's many years of experience in executing projects for courier businesses, which was recognised by UPS, and for which we are grateful - added Marek Dobrzycki.
