On June 18, 2021, Ukrposhta acquired 18 IVECO EuroCargo trucks worth about UAH 44.5 million. The cars were transferred by the company to the national postal operator of Ukraine by the OTP Leasing company on the terms of financial leasing.
Ukrposhta purchased a car within the framework of the program of expansion and renewal of the vehicle fleet. The new cars will serve routes from Kiev, Lviv and Dnieper.
According to the head of Ukrposhta Igor Smelyansky, today the average age of cars working in the company has decreased from 15 to 7 years, while over the past 4 years more than 3 thousand new cars have been purchased.
To purchase a car, Ukrposhta used the financial leasing model, which it already used last year. To determine the lessor company, a tender was announced and OTP Leasing won among the three bidders, offering the most profitable contract for 3 years.
Last year, Ukrposhta purchased about 700 cars, and this year it is planned to purchase almost three times more - 1920 cars for updating the fleet (70 cars) and launching mobile departments (1850 cars). So, for 5 years the company has updated almost half of its vehicle fleet.
Recall that in March 2021, Ukrposhta carried out the largest purchase of cars on the Ukrainian market for 1,860 cars for mobile offices.
