Zalando: will build two new fullfilment centers in Bydgoszcz, Poland, and create more than 4,000 jobs

Bydgoszcz and its surroundings were chosen for new realization centers because of their proximity to Polish customers and other nearby realization points. The region also has a high labor potential and proximity to other Zalando sites in Poland, which will allow seamless coordination of projects.

"The investment in and around Bydgoszcz will allow us to expand our European logistics network and support the growth of our Zalando Lounge, which has become popular with customers at our sites, particularly in Poland. For the first time, we will have two sites in the same city, which is unique for our logistics network and will give us the opportunity to unlock new potential and create successful collaborative teams for even greater convenience for our customers," says Martin Rost, Senior Vice President Offprice at Zalando.

Along with the construction of new facilities, additional investments are planned in cooperation with the local government, including infrastructure renovations and new roads near Zalando facilities.

"We are pleased that Zalando appreciated the business potential of our region and chose Bydgoszcz and Biała Błoto to build two new fullfilment centers. Thanks to this investment several thousand people will find jobs in the local market. I wish the investor effective implementation of development plans in our city and region and look forward to further fruitful cooperation," says Rafal Bruski, Mayor of Bydgoszcz.

"From the beginning, the Regional Development Agency of Bydgoszcz supported Zalando in the process of selecting the location and launching projects in Bydgoszcz and its surroundings, so we are all pleased with the implementation of both of these investments. Investments made by Zalando not only confirm the great potential of our city and metropolitan area of Bydgoszcz to develop modern projects in logistics and warehousing, but also allow us to strengthen our position in the domestic market of these services", comments Edyta Wiwatowska, President of the Management Board of Regional Development Agency in Bydgoszcz.

The fulfilment centers in Bydgoszcz and Biała Blot are additional investments of Zalando in Poland in addition to the facilities in Gryfino (Stettin), Olsztynek and Głuchów (Lodz).
