DPD and Interlink franchise vs inhouse depot reviews

Interlink ExpressWe received an email from a Tamebay reader who’s local Interlink Express depot is being taken back inhouse as a DPD depot. DPD of course own Interlink Express.

Here at Tamebay we love DPD and their fantastic tracking. Recently DPD launched an app which even enables drivers to redeliver to you when the see that you’re back home if you missed a delivery earlier in the day. Anything that DPD are doing is worth taking a look at.

2015 DPD_logo featWe asked DPD if closing franchise depots is nationwide and if this was a move away from the franchise model.

A DPD spokesperson told us: “We review all DPD and Interlink locations on an ongoing basis, dependent on the local market conditions and viability. There are occasions when we have moved from separate franchise depots into bigger dual branded company owned DPD/Interlink sites, for example in Edinburgh recently, so it is a fluid situation. Obviously, we can’t comment on the detail of that ongoing review process“.
