UK delivery and logistics company DX has opened two new depots in the West Midlands and the Southwest of England as it continues to expand its delivery network.
Both depots will serve the group’s DX Freight division, which specializes in the delivery of irregular dimension and weight (IDW) items. The new depot in the Southwest is on Bodmin Business Park and will service distribution across Cornwall. The new West Midlands depot is located on Seven Stars Industrial Estate in Coventry. DX’s freight operations at Nuneaton, where the Group’s Express division operates, have transferred to the Coventry depot.
The new depots are part of DX’s ongoing investment in its delivery network. Having recently completed a two-year capital investment program worth £10m (US$14m), which saw significant investment in both new and existing sites, a larger program of investment worth between £20m and £25m (US$27m to US$34m) over the next three years has recently been launched. As part of this program, more than 12 additional depots are planned to be added over the next two years, along with further investment in parcel-handling equipment and IT infrastructure.
Lloyd Dunn, CEO of DX Group, said, “We have found two excellent sites in Bodmin and Coventry. Not only do they add further capacity, but they will help to enhance customer service levels. Investment in the depot network will continue to be a major focus this year, as we continue to drive the business forward.”
