The new depot in Collooney, County Sligo.

DX Group, a leading provider of delivery solutions, including parcel freight, secure courier, 2-Man and logistics services is opening of its first regional depot in the Republic of Ireland.

The new site comprising a 7,500 sq. ft. facility is located on Toberbride Business Park in Collooney, Sligo and will cover Counties Sligo, Leitrim, Mayo and Roscommon.

The opening of the Sligo depot marks the start of a plan to expand the DX network within the Republic of Ireland. The group is actively sourcing additional strategic locations to further enhance service levels and increase capacity across the country.

This new depot adds capacity for the Group’s Parcels operation, part of the DX Express division which provides highly secure, tracked deliveries. The new depot also improves operational efficiencies, reduces stem mileage, carbon emissions, and enhances customer service levels, a key focus for the Group.

The DX Parcels operation remains a major area of growth for the group and further capital investment is planned over the remainder of the year to support this.

Paul Ibbetson, Chief Executive Officer of DX Group, commented: “We are pleased to be opening our first regional depot in the Republic of Ireland. This is a statement of intent to increase the DX presence in ROI. The new depot in Sligo will provide our Express operations with greater capacity and increase capability in the area. It also helps to make us more efficient and reduces our stem mileage, which in turn will lower our overall carbon emissions.

“We have invested significantly in our depot network over the past few years and will continue this programme across the Group, including IT, vehicles and equipment.”
