Nova Poshta will build a sorting terminal near Boryspil airport for UAH 1 billion
Nova Poshta Group of Companies is investing UAH 1 billion in the construction of a sorting terminal near Boryspil International Airport, said Oleksandr Bulba, the company’s CEO.
“We deliver hundreds of millions of parcels a year to customers. Nova Poshta invests in sorting infrastructure so that they always receive shipments quickly. The terminal near Boryspil Airport will connect advanced technologies of world postal logistics and will be able to sort up to 100,000 parcels per hour, ”he said.
According to Bulba, the total area of the terminal will be 35 thousand square meters. There will be a sorting station “Nova Poshta Global” for international shipments, internal fulfillment, parcel and cargo hulls with a high level of automation and robotics.
The terminal will also be equipped with a runway for unmanned aerial vehicles.
Six three-storey automated lines from the Dutch company Vanderlande and the Lithuanian company Equinox will be used to sort the parcels. The latter will sort a small load of up to 2 kg. Thanks to a special technology of automatic laying of parcels on the conveyor, sorting of small cargo will take place without the use of human labor.
Bulba added that in addition, the terminal will implement video analysis technology, which will most clearly recognize parcels with damaged markings. This will help improve the quality and integrity of delivery to customers.
In the cargo terminal there will be work carts for transporting cargo through the terminal. They are already used in terminals in Lviv, Kyiv, Kharkiv and Dnipro.
The terminal will be able to simultaneously unload and load 220 cars, which will be part of the relay logistics chain. To reduce CO2 emissions, a system of “smart” loading of containers with Smart pack parcels will be implemented.
According to the CEO of Nova Poshta, 300 jobs will be created at the terminal. Transportation, food, and medical insurance are provided for employees. In addition, to prevent the spread of viral diseases, special equipment will be installed – cameras to monitor the temperature and physical condition of workers at the entrance and exit.
The construction will take place in three stages. The first stage is planned to be launched by the end of 2022.
