Posta opens in Copenhagen

Because of the growing air freight business, Posta has opened a new branch in Copenhagen.

Posta has experienced significant growth in its air freight business. In order to provide even better service to its customers and to meet the growing demand in the market, which encompasses not only the Faroe Islands, but also Greenland and Iceland, Posta will be opening this week a branch in Copenhagen close by the airport in Kastrup.

The Kastrup Airport, which is the largest airport in Denmark, operates as a major hub for air freight to and from the Faroe Islands. Naturally, it made good sense to open the new branch very near the airport.

The branch is a part of the Posta subsidiary, Posta Logistics, which began operations in 2015 in Kolding in Jylland. Since its founding, Posta Logistics has experienced a growing business throughout the North Atlantic.

'The opening of the new branch enables us to develop and expand the company and lay the groundwork for even greater growth. At the same time, we are able to strengthen our current business and provide an even better customer experience for everyone. The new branch makes it much easier to drop off a package and enhances speedy delivery or pickup by a customer. This is an important advantage for all of our customers,' observes Joel undir Leitinum, CEO of Posta.

The Branch Manager in Copenhagen is Nick Plytsgaard, who previously was a manager of the air freight company, Bendix Transport, in Kastrup. Currently, nine people work for Posta Logistics, of which seven are based in Kolding. At the Kolding facility, Posta has a storage capacity of over 1,600 square metres, and in Copenhagen the capacity is 800 square metres. In addition to air freight, both branches also handle sea freight and overland freight transport throughout Europe.
