DX wins Passport Office and other government contracts

Parcels, mail and logistics operator DX Group has retained the contract it has been operating with Her Majesty’s Passport Office.

The notice was given that DX has been provisionally awarded it so in theory could fall through. However, the contract should be for an initial two year period with the provision it could be extended for two years. The contract covers providing secured delivery services to the HMPO as well as UK Visas and Immigration, the National Crime Agency and General Register Office.

Petar Cvetkovic, Chief Executive Officer of DX, said: “We are very pleased to have retained the Home Office contract in this tender process.  We are proud to have provided a high quality service to HMPO for over a decade, setting market-leading standards of security and care during this time, and we look forward to building on these achievements.”

The company made the announcement in a statement in which DX also said that “trading conditions over the first half of the financial year have remained challenging and there has been margin pressure mainly resulting from a change in revenue mix”.

Cvetkovic commented: “Trading pressures remain in the business but we are focused on meeting management expectations for the full year and are encouraged by both the new contracts due to start and by the pipeline of new business opportunities under active negotiation.”

DX Group also confirmed that its planning appeal and revised application to develop a new central hub in the West Midlands remains under consideration by the local authority and the company now expects a decision by mid-February.
