UK delivery provider DX Group has completed two new depots in Bracknell, Berkshire, and Swindon, Wiltshire. The openings take the number of new sites opened, including depot relocations, since July 2022 to six.
Both sites will serve the group’s DX Express division and in particular its parcels operation, which provides highly secure tracked B2B and B2C deliveries.
The Bracknell site is located on Eastern Road Industrial Estate and provides a new dedicated regional hub for DX Express. Previously the division shared a site with the Group’s DX Freight division. The site in Swindon is located on Rushy Platt Industrial Estate and replaces a smaller DX Express depot.
Paul Ibbetson, CEO, DX Group, commented, “These new depots support DX Express’s continuing growth, and in particular parcels’ expansion. Our parcels activity has grown significantly in the last two years, and these new depots will increase capacity, improve efficiency and enhance the division’s customer service levels.”
As well as increasing DX Express’s capacity, these sites will improve operational efficiency, and increase the division’s local presence. The new site openings are as part of the group’s ongoing £20m-£25m (US$24m-US$30m) investment program, and further depot openings are planned in the remainder of DX’s current financial year ending July 1, 2023. Alongside substantial investment in its delivery networks, DX continues to invest in new fleet, including electric vehicles, parcel-handling automation and new technology.
