New Central Bohemia Depot of PPL to Offer up to 130 Jobs


Since the beginning of November, the Central Bohemian Region has been reaping the benefits offered by the newly established depot in Kostelec nad Černými lesy which has been set into pilot operation by PPL CZ. The newly established depot is poised to create up to 130 new job opportunities and boasts a handling capacity of up to 15,000 parcels per day, significantly bolstering the forwarding network and delivery infrastructure throughout the region.

When opening the depot, PPL CZ focused not only on its sustainable strategy, but also implemented a unique project for revitalisation of the land and countryside surrounding the newly opened facility.

PPL has once again taken a major step forward in terms of parcel forwarding, the opening ceremony for its brand-new regional depot in Kostelec nad Černými lesy having being held this November. The new depot in the Central Bohemia region which occupies an area of 19,000 m2 will help to fortify network density and augment the daily capacity of the nearby central transshipment centre in Jažlovice by an impressive 15,000 parcels. These parcels will be handled by a state-of-the-art sorting line stretching a total length of 543 metres.

The depot in Kostelec marks the fourth major step which we have taken towards enhancing our network density over the last year. This expansion of our infrastructure brings us significantly closer to our valued customers and consumers, thereby reinforcing both the quality and capacity of our network. Consequently, this also strengthens PPL’s standing and importance on the market. Thanks to our forwarding capacity, we are well-equipped to deliver top-tier service to our customers with the utmost speed and efficiency. We are ready to seamlessly integrate the new Kostelec depot into our network, ensuring its operational efficiency right from the word go and its support for the unique structure of the stable and flexible network operated by PPL. At the same time, we are ready to manage not only seasonal challenges, but also to honour the agreements we have entered into and to meet customer expectations,” says Petr Basák, Sales Director at PPL CZ.

The depot in Kostelec nad Černými lesy is poised to create up to thirty new job opportunities in the Central Bohemian region along with another hundred jobs in related transport and warehouse roles. The vehicle fleet operated by PPL CZ will be bolstered by 60 new vans dedicated to handling of operations in the new depot.
