China’s e-commerce platform AliExpress will open its first independent logistics center in Central and Eastern Europe in Poland. It should also serve the surrounding countries.
The logistics center is to have an area of 10,000 square meters and is located near the city of Lodz. It will start operating officially before November 11, and in addition to domestic Poles, it will also serve clients in Russia, the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany and, to the delight of locals, also in Slovakia.
“Poland is our regional center in Central and Eastern Europe. For AliExpress, it was a natural investment choice for the first logistics center in the region,” said Gary Topp, Director General for Central and Eastern Europe.
The launch of the center will enable the delivery of ordered goods in Poland within three days. In the case of large cities such as Warsaw, Lodz, Krakow and Katowice, it will be possible to deliver the goods even the next day.
