DPD Ireland to meet e-commerce demand with new hub

DPD Ireland plans to spend €30m on building a new hub to boost capacity as it strives to handle a surge in demand for online deliveries, reports Independent.ie

Des Travers, the Scottish chief executive of DPD Ireland, said he was weighing up locations for the facility, such as near the M50 or in Athlone, home to the company’s central hub and sorting centre.

The new hub, which is set to be built within 18 months, represents the largest-ever investment in Ireland by DPD Group, the Europe-wide parcel delivery company owned by Groupe La Poste, the French postal service.

Covid-19 restrictions accelerated consumer appetite for online deliveries, leading to a 47pc increase in the volumes handled by DPD Ireland last year. Travers expects DPD to deliver at least 22 million parcels this year, up from 17 million in 2020.
