InPost, the leading e-commerce enablement platforms in Europe, was launched its “Same Day Delivery” in Poland. Parcels intended for delivery to a recipient within the same city that reaches the distribution center before 4:00 pm, will be delivered to InPost’s automated parcel machines (APMs) on the same day. This new functionality will be available to all of InPost’s customers without additional fees.
The added convenience of express delivery is a result of significant investments in technology to develop modern, fully automated distribution centers and establish an unrivalled density of InPost APMs in Poland. Initially, Same Day Delivery will be available in Warsaw and Łódź, with the aim to roll out the service in several of Poland’s largest cities by the end of the year.
