Baltic News Network - - Front Page -

Pony Ex­press has an­nounced its en­try to the Euro­pean mar­ket. Its first of­fice will be opened in Riga, com­pany rep­re­sen­ta­tives say.

In Latvia, Pony Ex­press will of­fer postal and cargo trans­porta­tion ser­vices, as well as eco­nom­i­cal de­liv­er­ies in the coun­try and any des­ti­na­tion in for­eign coun­tries. The com­pany will also of­fer postal and cargo trans­porta­tion ser­vices to Latvia from abroad. Look­ing at a three-year per­spec­tive, the com­pany pre­dicts prof­its worth more than seven mil­lion eu­ros from busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties in Latvia.

«The Baltic mar­ket is strate­gi­cally im­por­tant for us,» says Pony Ex­press Di­rec­tor Gen­eral in Latvia Alek­san­drs Ko­valevskis. «We not only highly value Latvia’s tran­sit po­ten­tial, but also see de­mand for com­plex high-qual­ity lo­gis­tics ser­vices at ad­e­quate prices. We are pre­pared to of­fer lo­cal part­ners a max­i­mum range of ser­vices, up to full out­sourc­ing of lo­gis­tics ser­vices,» the di­rec­tor gen­eral says about the com­pany’s ser­vices. Ac­cord­ing to Ko­valevskis, the com­pany’s main of­fered ad­van­tages in­clude the fol­low­ing: de­liv­ery time is the main ad­van­tage over com­pet­ing com­pa­nies. Within a sin­gle coun­try, de­liv­er­ies are car­ried out within a sin­gle work day. The road to Moscow takes one to two days, and to Al­maty (Kaza­khstan) – up to three days. Ser­vice prices are shap­ing to be 20% cheaper in com­par­i­son with other ser­vice providers present on Latvia’s mar­ket. «Such a price of­fer by Pony Ex­press is pos­si­ble thanks to a wide network of of­fices and the com­pany’s land and air routes. The op­er­a­tor plans to con­quer no less than 5% of Baltic ex­press de­liv­er­ies mar­ket in the next three years,» Ko­valevskis says.

An­other di­rec­tion cho­sen by Pony Ex­press in Latvia is ware­house lo­gis­tics. The com­pany al­ready of­fers ware­house and cargo pro­cess­ing ser­vices, as well as de­liv­ery ser­vices for Lat­vian in­ter­net shops. The op­er­a­tor plans to es­tab­lish cargo trans­porta­tion busi­ness in Latvia within the next twelve months.
