Yodel launches transport business

Parcel delivery company Yodel has created Yodel Transport bringing together the company’s driver base following the acquisition of the domestic parcel businesses of DHL Express into one transport unit with a specialist leadership team.

Jamie Stephenson, Yodel Transport’s managing director said: “We are making significant investments in new trailers and a state-of-the-art control tower, which is near completion, to support the effective management of network operations. We will have one of the largest transport fleets in the UK.”

Yodel Transport has ordered 107 new Double Deck trailers with lifting decks from manufacturers Don-Bur. The first ones will arrive in early June.

This new order comes on top of the 100 replacement aero-dynamic, single deck trailers Yodel purchased in November 2010

Jonathan Smith, Yodel CEO, said: “The investment in Yodel Transport, including the new Double Deck trailers and the modern Control Tower are a statement of our ambitions.

“We are on a journey to make Yodel best-in-class, offering our customers the broadest range of services to suit their parcel delivery demands.”
