Delivery business builds for the future by investing in its fourth depot

YDL, part of The APC parcel delivery network, has acquired a new 30,000 sq ft site in West Yorkshire.

It follows continued growth for the business, which has recorded a 27% year-on-year increase in parcel volumes.

The new site in Brighouse, one of four YDL depots within The APC network, combines with YDL’s expanding portfolio to offer almost 130,000 sq ft of space – allowing the business to extend its overnight and same day parcel collection and delivery service offerings to local businesses across North and West Yorkshire.

Additionally, the increased space allows YDL to build on its warehousing, haulage and pallets services for customers.

Alongside the investment in its business, YDL has grown its workforce, hiring 15 people in the last year.

Dave Lawson, CEO, said: “Following the pandemic, the economy entered a new period of turbulence, and across our business we have worked hard to continue navigating the changing needs of our customers.

“Although the world is still changing, we know from experience that local entrepreneurs are very resilient, tirelessly proving their agility and entrepreneurialism.

“We remain committed to supporting our customers as they continue to adapt, investing in our own business and workforce, to provide them with the best possible service options.”

Jonathan Smith, chief executive at The APC, said: “As a business, YDL is clearly committed to building for future growth, and the growth of customers.

“Its new depot and investment in its business will ensure YDL is well placed to navigate the continued evolution of our industry; and I am confident the passion, pride and dedication that comes from the people within the team, will ensure our customers continue to be served well.”
