Parcel freight firm DX Group has relaunched yet another former Tuffnells Parcels Express depot, taking the total to 13 out of the 15 depots acquired by the group when Tuffnells went bust in June this year.

The new 15,190 sq ft facility is located in Stafford, on the Beacon Business Park. It is the latest addition to the group’s parcels network and part of the DX Express division, which provides highly secure, tracked deliveries to both business and consumer addresses.

the group said that the depot will provide further capacity and improve operational efficiencies, by reducing stem mileage and carbon emissions, as well as enhancing customer service levels, which it said is a key focus for the group.

It added that this latest opening is part of the group’s ongoing major capital programme in the business as management “continues to drive the group’s growth and development.”

Paul Ibbetson, DX Group chief executive, added: “The opening of the Stafford depot means that we have now reopened 13 of the 15 depots that we took on from Tuffnells’ Administrators in late June.

“It increases the capacity and capability of our Express Parcels operation, which is growing strongly, and delivers further efficiencies, environmental and customer service benefits.

“Expanding and improving the depot network underpins the continued successful delivery of our growth plans, and we look forward to reporting on further openings over the forthcoming months”.
