Delivery specialist DX is to open new depots in Bracknell and Swindon.
The openings take the number of new sites opened since July 2022 to six. Both sites will serve the group’s DX Express division and in particular its parcels operation, which provides highly-secure, tracked B2B and B2C deliveries.
Parcel volumes at the division have been growing strongly and remain a major area for expansion.
The Bracknell site is on Eastern Road Industrial Estate and will be a regional hub for DX Express.
Previously, the division shared a site with the group’s DX Freight division, the move therefore increases capacity for both divisions.
The Swindon site is on Rushy Platt Industrial Estate and replaces a smaller DX Express depot in the area.
The new site openings are as part of the group’s ongoing £20-£25 million investment programme, and further depot openings are planned in the remainder of the current financial year ending July 1.
Paul Ibbetson, chief executive officer of DX (Group), said: “These new depots support DX Express’s continuing growth, and in particular parcels’ expansion.
“Our parcels activity has grown significantly in the last two years, and these new depots will increase capacity, improve efficiency and enhance the division’s customer service levels.
“We will be opening additional new depots over the remainder of the current financial year.”
