According to property developer Stoford, the construction on the new £12 million DPD distribution centre at Vertex Park on the outskirts of Bristol is on track for completion this June.
The steel frame and roof of the nearly 69,000 square foot DPD facility have now been completed. According to Stoford director Alex Morgan, “It’s great to see the development at Vertex Park making very good progress and we are on course to reach practical completion in June. DPD has built a strong delivery network right across the country and this will be further enhanced with its expansion into the South West.”
Meanwhile, DPD’s Louise Ferguson added: “Vertex Park is part of a major infrastructure investment programme for DPD in 2017. Our rapid growth in recent years means that up and down the country we are expanding our operation.
“Purpose-built distribution centres such as this give us a huge advantage over our competitors. It will be a state-of-the-art facility, in a great location, with room for us to continue growing.
“I’m really pleased with the progress to date and plans are already well advanced for our team to get on site and start preparing for the first parcels later this year.”
Major delivery companies around the UK, including DPD, Amazon and DHL among others, are building in capacity for the e-commerce boom that shows no sign of slowing down as the market replaces the shrinking bricks and mortar retail industry as the UK’s primary retail environment of choice.
