Delivery firm expands Yorkshire and County Durham sites after 35% growth
A parcel delivery firm has expanded its Northern sites after seeing a ‘surge’ in online shopping.
YDL, part of the APC network, has today announced a 35 per cent year-on-year growth in parcels.
In order to support the growth of the business, YDL has taken on an additional 4,000 sq ft of space across its two depots in York and County Durham, alongside an extra 73,000 sq ft of space for pallet and storage facilities.
Dave Lawson, CEO of YDL, commented: “The small business scene across Yorkshire and County Durham has really thrived despite the difficulties in the last year, with customers across the region proving their resilience and entrepreneurialism.
“All of our staff have worked tirelessly these past months, to support this resilience and ensure local businesses always have a local team working in partnership with them.
“As we start 2021, we are dedicated to supporting the continued growth of SMEs across the region and The APC network, providing them with improved service options to help them flourish in the years ahead.”
Jonathan Smith, chief executive of The APC, added: “Through our annual performance awards we recognise our brilliant depot teams and colleagues who have shown hard work and commitment to continually meeting the increasing and changing logistics needs of the nation during this crisis.
“Not only have they offered critical logistics support to SMEs across the UK, but in many cases have gone above and beyond in recognising the needs of their customers and their local communities, working hard in partnership with them to ensure those needs are met.”
