Polish apparel company LPP (LPPP.WA) has launched a new business to manage the retailer's logistics network, starting in August, the company said on Tuesday.

LPP Logistics will be responsible for operations at a network of seven facilities situated in Poland and abroad, Reuters reported.

It will handle "tens of thousands" of containers and distribute about 400 million items a year, said Jacek Kujawa, CEO of the newly launched unit.

LPP Logistics expects to open two new warehouses each year and, with ecommerce making up an increasing share of operations, is looking at technology such as autonomous mobile robots.

Although the operator's biggest clients are LPP group brands, it does not rule out providing services to external companies.
