Courier firm expands operations through new hubs
DX Group has opened a new regional hub and depot as part of its £20-£25m investment programme.
The delivery firm’s new hub in Haydock, Merseyside, comprises more than 33,000 sq ft on the redeveloped Connect Park. DX says it will be a “major hub and depot” for its North West operations and the building has been “extensively refurbished”.
The depot site in Shropshire is located in Shrewsbury on Battlefield Enterprise Park, and replaces an existing site in the area. This new depot is “substantially larger”, to increase DX’s capacity to meet demand for its services in the area.
DX’s openings form part of plans to open six new depots and relocating three depots in the current financial year. Sites are set to serve the group’s Parcels operations – part of the DX Express division – and provide highly-secure, tracked B2B and B2C deliveries.
Paul Ibbetson, Chief Executive Officer of DX said: “Our Parcels operation is growing strongly and the significant investment we are putting into expanding our delivery network will support further growth, improve operational efficiencies, and further underpin high service levels.
“The new hub at Haydock in Merseyside makes us operationally and commercially more effective in the region; the relocation to a larger new depot in Shrewsbury substantially increases capacity in that area.”
