DPD UK has today [23 Feb] announced the completion of its acquisition of last mile courier company Absolutely to ‘further strengthen its same-day delivery capabilities across the UK’.
Operating across the South East, Absolutely has a fleet of around 200 couriers servicing more than 2,500 clients ranging from fashion brands to law firms.
Its vehicle fleet includes cargo bikes, bicycles, vans, and motorbikes. It also offers temperature-controlled courier services.
This follows DPD UK’s acquisition of same-day delivery company CitySprint in January 2022.
Elaine Kerr, Chief Executive of DPD UK, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the Absolutely team to our UK business. Same day delivery is one of the fastest growing segments of the logistics market and this move allows us to further strengthen and expand our offer in this area, following the acquisition of CitySprint last year.”
Absolutely Chief Executive Stuart Godman explained how this change will affect the company’s business operations, saying: “This move is great news for our existing customers, and we look forward to offering them access to DPD’s broader range of services in due course. But for now, it’s very much business as usual.”
