DPD is opening a new distribution centre (DC) in Dunstable and new depots in Bicester, London’s Park Royal, Goole and Aberdeen in anticipation of the peak Christmas season in 2016. The total investment is understood to be £10m.

DPD CEO Dwain McDonald says: “In the last few years DPD has enjoyed unprecedented growth. We’ve invested heavily in developing our distribution network and in creating a range of innovative, customer focused services. These new depots are the latest in our ongoing investment in our infrastructure and will allow us to continue to deliver a first class service to businesses, online retailers and their customers for years to come.”

“Our purpose built, state-of-the-art DCs and depots make a huge impact on our distribution network, both in terms of extra capacity and greater efficiency. And, the new locations will also give our drivers better access to major road networks, improving our journey times. Our approach to Peak is always based largely around bringing on board new, permanent infrastructure and staff – resources that are then available to us next year to help us continue growing.”

    They already have a large depot in Park Royal next to my warehouse — is this a second depot or announcement stuffing?
