Delivery company DX has announced that it will be investing £3.6 million into upgrading its existing depot network, with funds already being put to use and the full total due to be invested by July 2023.
The UK-based courier believes that these modifications to its depots will lead to ‘increased capacity, improved productivity, and raised efficiency levels’, claiming that these results have been seen in depots that have already had improvements made.
Upgrades include the installation of new raised docks, expanded loading areas, and improvements to energy efficiency in some of its its depots within the DX Freight division of the firm. These facilities are in Exeter, Middlesbrough, Northampton, Plymouth, and Thatcham.
In addition, its division dedicated to next-day deliveries, DX Express, has seen upgrades to its sites in Gatwick and Nuneaton, including more mechanisation and the implementation of new environmental initiatives.
DX opened eight new depots in the last financial year, and plans to have opened a further eight by the end of the current financial year in July 2023.
Mark Hammond, Executive Chairman of DX Group said: “We have ambitious growth plans and the significant investment we are making in our depot network – both in new and existing sites – will underpin continued growth and improvements to customer service and operational efficiencies.”
