Commenting on the figures, Rafał Brzoska, Founder and CEO of InPost Group, said:
We’re excited to report another quarter of volume increase, outpacing the market in all our key geographies.
“In our flagship market of Poland, we not only saw an 18% growth in parcel volumes, but also achieved significant margin improvements. Similarly, Mondial Relay delivered a strong uplift in volumes, proving the strength of our offering in its markets. The increase of B2C parcels during Q1 2023 is a testament to our strategies in the Mondial Relay, especially in France. In the UK, we are optimistic about the outlook, having seen encouraging improvement in the economics per parcel.”
“We are committed to unlocking our growth potential in the UK and remain focused on enhancing the logistics supporting our operations in this market. Despite our volume increase across all geographies, we are mindful of the overall market slowdown. However, we remain confident in our ability to meet our ambitious expectations as laid out at the beginning of the year.”
