UK medium sized delivery company The Delivery Group has announced it has had annual sales of £200 million in 2016. This is a 61% increase on the £124 million that it made in 2015.
Apex Insight reported in October that The Delivery Group had bought e-commerce specialist P2P Mailing that should significantly boost its revenues. Prior to the acquisition the company composed of post and parcel businesses Secured Mail and the CMS Network.
The company released a statement today that said that The Delivery Group is now forecasting “another significant year of growth to a turnover of £235million in 2017″.
The Delivery Group added that – “despite difficult market conditions triggered by Britain’s decision to leave the EU” – it “managed to buck market trends, handling over 500 million items of mail, with international mail and e-commerce services being the most significant growth areas”.
The Delivery Group Chairman Paul Carvell commented: “Joining forces with P2P Mailing has been a major coup for the Group and one that enables us to offer our 850-strong client base a truly holistic e-commerce and specialist mail delivery service. The influence of e-commerce on the future of distribution cannot be underestimated; last year alone it contributed £133 billion to UK GDP, and this acquisition now makes us the provider of choice for specialist mail deliveries and domestic and international e-commerce.”
One of the fastest growing specialist delivery companies in the UK, it looks like there are good things to come for The Delivery Group.
