DX, a UK-based delivery solutions provider, has announced the opening of two new depots, in Westbury and Oxford, as part of the ongoing expansion of its network.
The company says both depots will serve its freight division, which specialises in the B2B and B2C delivery of items of irregular dimensions and weight (IDW). The approximately 14,500ft2 site in Westbury is located at West Wilts Trading Estate, with the slightly smaller Oxford site at Cherwell Valley Business Park.
The opening of the new depots is the latest step in DX’s expansion, with the company saying it has seen a dramatic turnaround in performance over the last three years. After a fundamental reorganization was completed in 2018, which included devolving responsibility and accountability to regional directors and general managers, the freight division has benefited from approximately £3.5m (US$4.5m) of investment so far. This, it says, has been channelled into site infrastructure improvements, including basic mechanization, technology and network expansion, and into the fleet.
Paul Ibbetson, managing director of DX Freight, said, “The opening of these new depots at Oxford and Westbury is the latest investment in our freight depot network. We added a new depot in Ipswich in January this year and have also increased our capacity at our Northampton and Newport depots. These developments support the ambitious expansion plans we have for the division over the next three years.”
