DPD gets green light for £100m Hinckley hub

DPD has been granted planning permission by for its new £100 million parcel hub in Hinckley Commercial Park, East Midlands, which is set to create around 1,000 jobs when fully operational.

The company says work is now likely to commence on the site, which hopes to be able to handle 70,000 parcels an hour, in late August and that it should be completed by 2015.

“This is another important step forward for the company and also for the region and our customers, said CEO Dwain McDonald.

“I’m very proud of the fact that we have been able to create so many jobs within our sector in the last few years, given the prevailing economic conditions, and obviously the building project itself will also create jobs directly on the site and in the supply chain.”

The project is part of DPD’s £175 million investment, announced in November 2012.

Goodman has been appointed as developer.
