New £300,000 depot to create over 40 new jobs

DPD vehicle at depotParcel firm DPD expects to create over 40 new jobs at its new depot located on the Dunball Industrial Estate in Bridgwater.

DPD has invested £300,000 in developing a 20,000 sq ft building on the Dunball Industrial Estate in the town.

The new site will service 34 new routes across Somerset and the surrounding area and support other rapidly growing DPD depots in Exeter, Bristol and Bournemouth.

DPD expects the new depot will create over 40 new jobs for drivers, warehouse and management staff.

Dwain McDonald, DPD’s CEO, comments: “DPD is the fastest growing parcel company in the UK and our success has been largely driven by our unique one-hour time slot home delivery service, Predict.

“Predict has enabled us to deliver revenue growth in excess of €100m for the second year in succession.

“The new Bridgwater depot is part of our continuing investment in business infrastructure, enabling us to expand our network capacity in response to customer demand and maintain our very high service standards – now and in the future.”
