10 May 2016 – DX, the leading independent parcels, mail and logistics operator, today announces the acquisition of the trade and assets of Legal Post and First Post from First Scottish. The deal is worth £3.25m, with completion expected at the end of May.

Upon completion, DX will combine Legal Post and First Post with its existing DX Exchange operations in Scotland to offer an enhanced service to both sets of customers.

Petar Cvetkovic, Chief Executive Officer of DX, commented:

“We are pleased to announce that we have agreed terms to acquire Legal Post and First Post, both of which are well-established operations that will enhance our customer offering. These businesses are wholly complementary to DX’s operations in Scotland and they will be stronger together for both sets of customers, increasing the number of members in a single Scottish exchange network and providing Legal Post’s members with access to DX’s existing members in the UK and Ireland.

DX invests in fleet to boost security and green credentials

Published by:

21 March 2016 – DX, a leading independent mail, parcels and logistics end-to-end network operator in the UK and Ireland, has announced a number of new innovations to its expanding fleet.

Following successful trials, recent investment includes the roll out of specially designed 3.5 tonne and 5 tonne delivery vehicles, which have greater fuel efficiency than its existing fleet. The new 3.5 tonne vehicle produces 15kg less CO2 emissions, and the 5 tonne vehicle 23kg less CO2 emissions, than their respective equivalents (per 100 miles travelled). These vehicles are also smaller, quieter and easier to manoeuvre through residential areas, causing less disruption.

The investment in more fuel-efficient vehicles goes hand in hand with DX’s stake in Gnewt Cargo, the zero emissions carrier with the world’s largest fully electric delivery fleet, further demonstrating DX’s ongoing commitment to reducing carbon emissions.

DX has also invested in new security features for its existing vehicles. This includes remote tracking and cut off, which enables DX to remotely disable a vehicle if there is any suspicion that is has been stolen, thus helping to protect any customer goods which may be on-board. This latest development coincides with the addition of FORS (Fleet Operator Recognitions Scheme) compliant ‘in-vehicle’ cameras, which will help prevent damage and also protect DX’s drivers from any fraudulent claims being made against them, whilst increasing their visibility of the road for greater safety.
