CEO of DPD Portugal: we hope to close the year with growth of around 13%
DPD Portugal has inaugurated its new parcel distribution hub in Loures. The investment in the new centre is part of the company’s expansion plan, which expects to close the year 2024 with a turnover of around €115M in Portugal, in express transport activity alone. The inauguration was attended by the Minister of Economy, Pedro Reis, and the Mayor of Loures, Ricardo Leão.

The new space responds to the growth in activity that DPD has been seeing in Portugal, after reaching its best year ever in 2023, surpassing the historic milestone of €101 million in turnover, standing out as one of the countries in which Geopost grew the most last year.

“We are very excited about the opening of the new hub, which responds to current demand and monitors the evolution of our customers’ needs. With this new logistics centre we intend to provide increasingly faster, more reliable and sustainable delivery services. And we believe that this will be an important step for us to continue growing in Portugal, where we hope to close the year with growth of around 13%, reaching €115M in revenue”,

says Olivier Establet, CEO of DPD Portugal.

The new hub has a total area of ​​12,000 square meters (m2): 3,100 m2 of offices, intended for the 140 people responsible for the administrative part of the company, and a 9,000 m2 warehouse, where 230 employees operate, responsible for sorting and distributing orders. . The new space, with a total area of ​​12,000 square meters, will now bring together in the same location the company’s headquarters and its respective operations in the Greater Lisbon area – currently located in São João da Talha (Loures) and Olivais (Lisbon) – making this hub is not only the largest in DPD in Portugal, but also in the country. Its investment is around €30 million and is an affirmation of DPD’s continued investment in innovative technology: the hub has a sorting machine with a unique crossbelt system in Portugal which, through its 405 meters of length, is able to manage more than 10,000 parcels per hour, destined for Lisbon area: Lisbon, Odivelas, Loures, Vila Franca de Xira, Mafra, Torres Vedras, Alenquer, Carregado.
