ONEPOST (Postal Choices Ltd) has been acquired by The Delivery Group for an undisclosed sum. This will bring together two of the biggest UK players in mail and e-commerce.
The merger will result in a company with an annual turnover of £250 million, with 500 staff across seven locations, and will handle volumes of around a billion items nationally and internationally.
Commenting on the transaction, The Delivery Group CEO Steve Stokes said: “We are delighted to conclude the acquisition of ONEPOST and look forward to working with their team to unlock the synergy benefits that exist and to further develop our portfolio of services to all our customers. We welcome the ONEPOST employees in Portishead and Derby to The Delivery Group family and would like to stress that its very much business as usual for stakeholders and service providers.”
Graham Cooper, the co-founder of ONEPOST commented: “The Delivery Group clearly identified the quality of our service, our staff and complementary focus on direct and marketing mail, and we in turn have been impressed with their commitment to people, partnerships and service performance. Their automation and transport technology is second to none, and will bring significant benefits to our customers with improved tracking, delivery accuracy and give us access to a wider range of services.”
The Delivery Group Chairman Paul Carvell added: “Since the management buy-out from Next Wave Partners last year, we have actively pursued our strategy to expand our service-range and geographical footprint, and ONEPOST fits perfectly into our plans. We will be announcing further developments over the coming months as we strive to become the premier systems-driven “one stop provider” in the post, package and parcel distribution sector.”
