Lithuania Post rebrands courier division as LP Express
Lithuania Post has rebranded its courier service as LP Express as part of efforts to upgrade its image and service quality. The national postal operator for the Baltic republic said the move, effective immediately, is part of a “revival” of its courier services.
The company has invested in new state-of-the-art data processing systems to ensure higher speed and accuracy for data exchange as it strives for high quality service results.
As LP Express, it will offer customers more flexible times for collection and delivery, it said.
Domas Sabaitis, the LP Express manager, said: “We hope that a new image and considerably higher quality results will enable us to offer high-level customer service and become one of the top companies operating in the delivery arena.”
LP Express currently has 180 employees including couriers sorting staff and administrative staff, with a fleet of 92 vehicles and a network of 10 logistics terminals across Lithuania. Lithuania Post’s express division currently delivers about 700,000 items a year.
A new logistics hub is set to be built in Kaunas, centra Lithuania, with operations moving there from the current site in Vilnius in 2015, a spokesperson told Post&Parcel. The new centre will sort mailpieces automatically and its central location should help reduce transportation costs since mail will not need to go to Vilnius before going out to the rest of Lithuania.
Lithuania Post said its LP Express couriers will wear newly-designed clothes and drive vehicles that bear the new LP Express logo.
The company’s network of automated self-service parcel terminals, known as SIUNTOS24, will also be operated under the LP Express banner, under the new name of LP Express 24.
The company’s parcel terminal network currently numbers 71 machines in 41 cities.
Sabaitis said Lithuania Post was the only company in the country offering such a wide choice of options for parcel delivery.
Lithuania Post achieved an 11.8% growth rate for its courier services in 2011 compared to 2010.
