Smart urban delivery in London
Opening in the autumn of 2018, the Westminster micro-depot is an all-electric last mile delivery service ideally located in the centre of London, just five minutes from Buckingham Palace, and will be home to the first DPD UK-owned Pickup store.
As of autumn, 2018, the new DPD Westminster micro-depot will provide all-electric last mile delivery throughout London from its location in the borough of Westminster, ideally situated in the heart of the city in close proximity to many of such well-known landmarks as Buckingham Palace.
Equipped with a fully electric fleet of trucks, vans, and Paxsters, the micro-depot will be capable of delivering 2,000 parcels every day. By using electric vehicles for last mile delivery, DPD will achieve a reduction of 45 tonnes of CO2 per year.
DPD Westminster will also be home to the first DPD UK-owned Pickup store, with convenient opening hours from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and a dedicated access point for customers collecting parcels from the site. Thanks to this new facility, DPD will come one step closer to becoming the most responsible city-centre delivery company in the United Kingdom.
