Rico growth powered by DA Systems

Rico Logistics is set to grow to a value of £80 million with a fleet of over 1,400 couriers and 35 locations across the UK, since its acquisition of DHL’s same day delivery business.

Rico rolled out DA Systems’ real-time courier management software, which was deployed across the entire new transport fleet by day one of the new trading entity, on 1st November 2013.

Sam Sharma, chief executive officer at Rico said: “This is a very exciting time for Rico. The acquisition has given our ambitious growth plan considerable momentum and will enable us to generate increased exposure for our brand and the range of services we offer.

“Working with DA Systems allows us to continue developing innovative ways to differentiate ourselves from competitors.”

Rico Logistics is one of Europe’s largest sameday logistics and parts distribution operations operating in 10 European countries
