GO! Express & Logistics presses ahead with internationalisation – focus on the Czech Republic

Bonn, 20 April 2016. GO! continues to focus on internationalisation and is strengthening its presence in Central Europe with the network expansion in the Czech Republic. With the expansion five additional significant business centres will be served overnight. Another milestone in 2016 will be the establishment of the GO! brand in Slovakia.

The expansion of services in the Czech Republic will play a decisive role in our network enlargement: the Czech Republic has been a GO! system partner since 2002, and belongs to the group of shareholder Wolfgang Sacher, GO! Berlin. Twenty-seven employees and more than 30 couriers ensure timely delivery of the highest quality. Under the leadership of coshareholder and managing director Martin Koča, GO! Czech Republic processed a total of 58,000 deliveries in 2015, thus achieving volume growth of 35 per cent year on year. This significant increase was primarily achieved in exports.

 

Shipping across Germany’s borders

 
With line management extended to Brno, the metropolitan areas of Olomouc, Ostrava, Hradec Králové, Pardubice and České Budějovice will be served with one-day transit times via the GO! network alongside the current locations of Praha (Prague) and Plzeň (Pilsen). Further development of the same-day area is planned for the first half of 2016. The establishment of the GO! Express & Logistics brand in Slovakia is also planned as part of the international network enlargement.
