DPD Netherlands opens new distribution centre in Goes

Parcel delivery company DPD Nederland is opening a new distribution centre on Livingstoneweg in Goes. Thanks to this new distribution centre, DPD is further expanding its capacity in the Netherlands so that it can continue to facilitate rapid growth. What’s more, delivery times and CO2 emissions from parcel deliveries in Zeeland will be greatly reduced. The new site has a total floor area of 3500 m² and a sorting machine more than 250 metres long. The new centre will provide 50 additional jobs.

In line with its sustainability policy, DPD has chosen to fully renovate the existing commercial building in Goes rather than build a new one. The renovation work also involves installing solar panels over the entire roof.

Eric Dietz, CEO DPD Nederland: ‘Following the opening of the Maastricht depot two years ago, it’s now the turn of the Goes depot. By opening new depots, we continue to expand our capacity so that we can respond to customer and market demand and process peak volumes fast. We are also looking at how we can plan our routes more efficiently and substantially reduce our CO2 emissions. One way we are doing this is by using electric vehicles.’
