Delivery firm DX is continuing to expand its network with the opening of two new depots in Westbury and Oxford.

The new depots will serve DX’s freight division, which specialises in the B2B and B2C delivery of items of irregular dimensions and weight (IDW).

The 14,500sq ft site in Westbury is located at West Wilts Trading Estate, whilst the slightly smaller Oxford site is at Cherwell Valley Business Park.

The opening of the new depots is the latest step in DX’s expansion, following what the company claims to be a “dramatic” turnaround in performance over the last three years, largely driven by a major restructuring in 2018, after the company reported losses of £10.9m.

The restructuring saw responsibility and accountability devolved to regional directors and general managers and an injection of £3.5m into the freight division, which has been channelled into site infrastructure improvements, including basic mechanisation, technology and network expansion, and into the fleet.

Paul Ibbetson, MD of DX Freight, said: “The opening of these new depots at Oxford and Westbury is the latest investment in our freight depot network.

“We added a new depot in Ipswich in January this year and have also increased our capacity at our Northampton and Newport depots. These developments support the ambitious expansion plans we have for the division over the next three years.”
