"Ukrpochta" in 2009-2013 will construct four automatic classifying sections of the center in Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, Lviv and Nikolaev. About it journalists were reported today by the director general of GPPS "Ukrpochta" Taisiya Zamkovaya, the correspondent of RBC - Ukraine reports. According to her, it will allow to increase "Ukrpochta's" profitability due to reduction of terms of processing of correspondence and reduction of volumes of manual skills.
Thus, in 2009 10 million UAH will be allocated for introduction of design works on construction of the sorting center in Dnepropetrovsk. "There the issue with the earth is already resolved. We so much need to construct the sorting center in Kiev, but yet the land issue here isn't resolved. The site of 8,8 hectares in size beyond Kiev is necessary for us. And it has to be located near the airport. Logistic requirements are that. We now refused rail transportation of mail, we use only a car - and the air transport. We already have an agreement with Donetsk and Simferopol the airports about service of "priority mail" which will be delivered only by planes", - she told.
According to T.Zamkova, project works in Dnepropetrovsk will begin in the middle of this year and about six months will last. 9 more months, according to the estimates of "Ukrpochta", construction will borrow, and 6-7 months is required on installation and adjusting. "It will be the most difficult and responsible process. We would like to carry out this stage without carrying out the tender if we manage to prove the legal case to Cabinet of Ministers. The Siemens company with us worked hard, it it defined location of future centers. But if we don't manage to prove it then there will be a tender and there will be a winner", - "Ukrpochta's" general director told.
She also reported that the cost of construction of all four automatic centers of sorting makes about 1 billion UAH. "Means will be taken from our depreciation charges.Further we plan to sell a site and the building of the old sorting center in Dnepropetrovsk and to direct proceeds on center construction in Kiev. And so we will move further", - she told.
