DPD Netherlands has opened a new 3,500m² distribution center in Goes in the Netherlands – which is expected to provide 50 additional jobs.
With the new distribution center, DPD will expand its capacity in the Netherlands to facilitate its growth, and reduce its delivery times and CO2 emissions for parcel deliveries in the Dutch province Zeeland.
In line with its sustainability policy, DPD Netherlands renovated an existing commercial building in Goes instead of building a new one, installing solar panels on the roof and a 250m long sorting machine.
Eric Dietz, CEO of DPD Netherlands, said, “Following the opening of the Maastricht depot two years ago, it’s now the turn of the Goes depot. By opening new depots, we continue to expand our capacity so that we can respond to customer and market demand and process peak volumes fast. We are also looking at how we can plan our routes more efficiently and substantially reduce our CO2 emissions. One way we are doing this is by using electric vehicles.”
