UK-based delivery provider DX group has reopened another former Tuffnells Parcels Express (Tuffnells) depot, located in Stafford, West Midlands.
It is one of 15 former Tuffnells depots that DX took over from administration in late June 2023. Twelve other depots had been reopened previously.
The new depot is located on the Beacon Business Park, northeast of Stafford town center, and comprises a 15,190ft2 (1,411m2 ) facility. As well as providing further parcel handling capacity, it will improve operational efficiencies by reducing mileage and carbon emissions, and enhancing customer service levels.
DX has added more than 700 former Tuffnells customers to date, and over 350 former Tuffnells employees have joined the group.
Paul Ibbetson, CEO of DX (Group), commented, “The opening of the Stafford depot means that we have now reopened 13 of the 15 depots that we took on from Tuffnells’ administrators in late June. It increases the capacity and capability of our Express Parcels operation, which is growing strongly, and delivers further efficiencies, environmental and customer service benefits.
“Expanding and improving the depot network underpins the continued successful delivery of our growth plans, and we look forward to reporting on further openings over the forthcoming months.”
