DX, a provider of delivery solutions including parcel freight, secure courier, 2-Man and logistics services, has opened a new depot in Rotherham, UK, the first in a program of multiple openings it has planned over the next two years.
The 1,858m2 depot on the Hellaby Industrial Estate will serve the group’s Express division, which specializes in secure, next-day parcel delivery. The company says the depot will provide the capacity for further growth in South Yorkshire and allow for enhanced levels of service to local customers.
This opening is the latest step in DX’s £10m (US$14m) capital expenditure program, which the firm is investing in sites, technology and equipment. As well as the Rotherham site, a new depot will open in Glasgow, Scotland, in the coming months. DX says it sees significant growth opportunities in the parcels market for DX Express, and is seeking to expand market share by focusing on its offering of secure, tracked deliveries backed by strong locally based customer service.
Lloyd Dunn, chief executive officer at DX (Group) plc, commented, “This new site in Rotherham increases our presence in South Yorkshire, and shows our confidence in the continued growth potential for the business. We see opportunities for DX Express to gain greater market share in the parcels market by focusing on our core strengths, and intend to open further new sites in the next two years to continue its development.”
