DPD UK has completed its acquisition of last-mile courier company Absolutely to improve its same-day delivery capabilities across the UK.
Operating across the South East, Absolutely currently has a fleet of around 200 couriers that service more than 2,500 clients.
Its vehicle fleet includes cargo bikes, bicycles, vans, and motorbikes. The delivery firm also offers temperature-controlled courier services.
This follows DPD UK’s acquisition of same-day delivery company CitySprint in January 2022. Absolutely is also focused on same-day delivery services.
Elaine Kerr, chief executive of DPD UK, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the Absolutely team to our UK business.
“Same day delivery is one of the fastest growing segments of the logistics market and this move allows us to further strengthen and expand our offer in this area, following the acquisition of CitySprint last year.”
