Post and parcel delivery provider The Delivery Group, the parent company of Secured Mail Express (SME) and the CMS Network, unveiled turnover of £124m (US$162m) in 2015, an increase of 55% year-on-year.
The Delivery Group was formed in 2015 to amalgamate the services offered by SME and CMS, and currently employs more than 350 staff operating from locations in London, Luton and Warrington in the UK.
SME provides specialist delivery services for the online retail and direct marketing sectors, while CMS is a provider of managed mail services and financial research distribution in the UK and internationally.
Paul Carvell, chairman of The Delivery Group, said, “2015 was a very successful year for the group and on the strength of the growth and opportunities in the group’s core markets, we have increased our sales and account management teams in order to continue our growth into 2016.
“The group is continuing its investment in market leading technology and operational infrastructure such as new mail sortation technology for managed mail solutions and the business is already committed to cross-border international mail in 2016.”
Mark Bigley, CEO of Secured Mail and director of The Delivery Group, said, “We’ve seen huge growth in the last year, particularly on our e-commerce and international side, by continuous improvement of the customer experience and our commitment to have the best quality of service standards in our markets. Our continued investment in automation and cloud technology has created a big uplift in sales.
