BUCHAREST (Romania), November 9th (SeeNews) – Delivery service DPD Romania has rented new warehouses in Arad, Bucharest and Brasov with a total area of 5,500 m², announced the real estate company JLL Romania on Monday.
The expansion follows a rapid growth in the Romanian e-commerce market, which has the potential to see the highest growth in the EU this year as the pandemic forces more and more retailers to migrate online, the property consultancy and deal advisor said JLL Romania in a press release.
This development has also led to a growth in the courier business and a high level of activity in the commercial rental space market, JLL added.
According to JLL, the demand for industrial and logistics space in the first nine months of the year was just under 380,000 m².
At the end of October, DPD announced that it had invested 500,000 euros (US $ 590,600) in a new warehouse in Bragadiru near Bucharest to keep pace with rising online orders.
DPD Romania is part of the DPD Group, an international delivery service that delivers 5.3 million parcels worldwide every day. The company has been active in the Romanian market since 2008 after the takeover of Pegasus Courier.
DPD Romania employs over 1,800 people, including franchisees who deliver over 15 million parcels every year.
