UK carrier DX has opened a new depot in Verwood, East Dorset. The depot is approximately 1,300m2 and located on Ebblake Industrial Estate, and will serve the group’s DX express division, which specializes in secure, next-day parcel delivery.
The opening of the depot will enable the expansion of the group’s operations in the southwest of the UK, improving DX’s regional capacity, driving service and productivity. Because investment in its depot network is a key pillar of the DX’s growth strategy, this is now the 10th site that DX has either opened or upgraded in 2021. Significant further investment in the group’s network is planned over the next three years, across both of DX’s divisions.
Lloyd Dunn, chief executive officer at DX (Group), commented, “We are pleased to be opening our new depot in Verwood, continuing the strong progress we have made in expanding our network in 2021. This latest site will allow us to increase DX Express’s presence in the southwest, enabling us to increase capacity for the region and enhance our service levels.”
