    • Letters with the weight of up to 2.000 g (Size A and B): regular, priority, registered, unregistered, with return receipt

We are fully prepared, in terms of technical background, to provide extensive operations, basing on a relevant number of locations, owing to the collaboration with RUCH SA. Moreover, we hold an outstanding technological potential, capable of processing the mass correspondence. Today, our state-of-the-art sorting plant deals with 1.2 million parcels daily, and its output has not been fully explored. It is worth noticing that Group has entered into numerous agreements with foreign partners and we jointly provide postal services on the European and global market" says Rafal Brzoska, CEO of Group



    „I am convinced that our commitment and involvement into the contract implementation could let us prove that we deserve to earn trust from the largest public institutions. Savings, that common courts and prosecutor’s offices gain thanks to that deal, will allow to achieve other objectives these institutions find crucial. Undoubtedly, we make our best to execute the contract smoothly and solve troublesome issues in an effective manner. In the recent days, we can expect that our proxies will appear in the courts and prosecutor’s offices to make initial arrangements. We are also eager to cooperate with the national postal operator in Poland (Polish Post) that may take advantage of gaining some financial profits on cooperation with commercial operators, as it is happening on the foreign markets. We are definitely satisfied with this step on heading into deregulation of the postal market, I mean a tender that we’ve won and clear decision of the National Chamber of Appeal. Shortly, we will also reveal addresses of our post locations on our website, where notified deliveries could be collectedcomments Leszek Zebrowski, CEO of the Polish Postal Group.



    „Following modernization and implementation of IT solutions to the network, the RUCH outlet has become a cutting edge spot providing its customers with a wide array of services. Owing to collaboration with InPost, our offer will be additionally expanded by an option allowing for collection of notified deliveries. The RUCH retail network covers the area of entire Poland. Our own locations and partner’s agencies can be found in each commune and therefore the accessibility of spots, which offer collection of notified deliveries, assures a nationwide range of operaton. Simultaneously, I may guarantee that the new service will be of top quality and collection of notified deliveries in the location holding the RUCH’s logo will be simple and, most of all, rapid”adds Igor Chalupec, CEO of RUCH S.A.



    Pursuant to the decision of the Purchasing Center Public Sector Enterprise of November 22, 2013, the Polish Postal Group had submitted the most favorable offer in the tender for processing of correspondence referring to common courts and prosecutor’s offices. The Polish Postal Group’s bid was over PLN 84 million lower as compared to the one of the Polish Post.


    On December 16, 2013 the National Chamber of Appeal upheld the decision of the Court Purchasing Center related to the tender won by the Polish Postal Group regarding processing of correspondence referring to common courts and prosecutor’s offices. The sentence of the National Chamber of Appeal dismissed an application of the Polish Post and acknowledged that the Polish Postal Group had fulfilled all the relevant criteria to implement the contract.


    The Polish Postal Group could have participated in the tender arranged by the Purchasing Center thanks to amendments introduced to the Specification of Essential Terms of a Contract (SIWZ), upon the decision of the National Chamber of Appeal of October 7, 2013, stating that none of the court or prosecutor’s office in Poland shall be entitled to claim that the postal receipt of the registered deliveries sent by courts or prosecutor’s offices is to be issued officially, referred to in Art. 17 of the Postal Law.
