CEO Dwain McDonald said: “Our record over the last five years speaks for itself with revenue up over £500 million and 4,000 new jobs created. Today we announced more good news with a five year plan to build a further ten new state-of-the-art depots which will create another 750 new jobs at least.

“I’m incredibly proud of what we have been able to do in terms of UK jobs and wealth creation – no other parcel delivery company has come close to matching our levels of growth, profitability or investment in recent years.

“Our success is based on innovation, service and investment – our unique Predict service means customers are in complete control of their delivery and don’t have to wait in all day.”

Last month, Predict helped DPD win the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2015 in the Innovation category.
