North Wales-based logistics company Delivery Solutions (Delsol) has reported a year of sustained growth.

The company added 30 staff to its now 170-strong workforce during 2019 - its 20th anniversary - which coincided with a 20% increase in revenues.

The company, which has depots in Sandycroft and Caernarfon, also completed the roll-out of a direct haulage service, which now comprises 15 44-tonne trucks and a total fleet of over 120 vehicles, and an expansion of its storage facility to 120,000 sq ft.

It also installed a new warehouse management system and secured the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Certification for Storage and Distribution.

Deliveries have risen from 1,500 to 1,650 per day.

Delsol MD Dave Phillips said: “We are committed to the continual investment in our business to ensure that it is able to meet the aspirations of our clients and our staff.

“There is quite a bit of consolidation in the logistics industry which means it is vital that we are forward-thinking and always on the lookout for ways in which we can continue to build our business. This includes continuing to invest in our people, their training and development and integrating the latest technology to further enhance the service we provide our customers.

“The warehousing and haulage sides of our company have grown significantly during 2019 and we have further growth plans for 2020. We are about to bring on board our first case-picking client who wants us to store, pick and deliver products to their customers across the UK.”

Phillips added that the company has plans for significant further recruitment across a wide range of roles including office support and drivers.
