DX Launches New Parcel Depots

DX, one of the UK’s most trusted courier services and provider of delivery solutions, has announced the official opening of the first of eight new parcel depots planned to launch during its current financial year ending 1 July 2023. The new depot’s goal is to  support the continuing expansion of the Group’s DX Express division, which manages the parcels operations.

Located on Paycocke Road in Basildon, Essex, the site will primarily serve the Southend and Chelmsford areas, complementing the DX Express depot in Harlow, and be exclusively dedicated to secure, next-day delivery of parcels and documents for both B2B and B2C customers.

“The new depot in Basildon is the first of eight new DX Express sites planned for this financial year. They will help to support the continuing growth of our parcels service, with the new site reinforcing our presence in Essex. An important element in growing our parcels operation has been our model of providing a high-quality, more localised and personal service, and we look forward to further expansion, which the Group is supporting with significant new investment,” commented Martin Illidge, Managing Director of DX Express.

Due to the fact that the company’s parcels service has shown a double digit growth over the last financial year, DX Express believes the service has huge potential for the future. By creating a locally-based, more personal service that has at its core all customers, the company has also brought to the marketplace an attractive differentiator.

Currently in the second year of a £20 – £25 million group wide investment programme, DX is focusing most of its attention, both internally and financially, on DX Express and DX Freight, where there is also heavy new investment coming. As well as expanding and upgrading its delivery network, it is investing in new vehicles, including electric vans, equipment and new technology.
