DPD invests £12m at Oldbury hub

Parcel delivery firm DPD will open a £12m extension of its national sorting hub at Oldbury on 22nd September.

And it has created 150 new full-times roles for loaders and Class 1 drivers at its Smethwick and Oldbury hubs in the West Midlands, to handle business growth.

Chief executive Dwain McDonald said: “Our business is continuing to grow. In particular, our unique Predict service, which offers customers a one hour delivery window, has produced £40 million of new business wins this year.

“The new facility at Oldbury provides state-of-the-art equipment and allows us to accommodate the vast volumes our business handles.”
