The Delivery Group Expands Operation with new £8m Bristol Hub

Leading e-commerce, mail and pallet specialist The Delivery Group has further expanded its operational footprint with the opening of a new 52,500 square foot processing hub in Bristol.

The Bristol premises – an £8 million investment – is now in
operation and will enable The Delivery Group to support the rapidly growing
delivery demand from clients in anticipation of peak volumes of 1 billion
items.

The Bristol hub comes hot on the heels of The Delivery
Group’s opening of its new Maidstone site in March and the company’s successful
acquisition of ONEPOST.  Bristol adds a
further 30% capacity to the company’s network. The site will process and sort
mail using the very latest letter and packet sortation machines, ready for
delivery into Royal Mail processing points across the South, South West and
Midlands.

Steve Stokes, CEO, The Delivery Group comments: “Our aim is
to deliver exceptional value and service to clients throughout the UK, and
Bristol represents the best strategic fit for our network. The Bristol hub
complements our existing sites in Warrington, Luton, Kent, Derby and Central
London, giving us a very strong geographic footprint across the country and
enabling us to expertly handle over 1 billion items.

“The eCommerce marketplace continues to grow at a rapid rate
and there is a real demand for expert logistical support to ensure goods arrive
at the desired time in the best possible condition. Our continued growth is
testament to the fact that our people know the market inside out, which enables
us to offer cost-effective solutions tailored to today’s delivery challenges.”

The Delivery Group’s new hub also represents great news for
the local economy, with the site expected to generate between 60-70 new jobs
split across mail processing and HGC driving.
