DPD to build new £100m parcel hub at Hinckley Commercial Park in Leicestershire
Parcel delivery giant DPD has been granted permission to build a brand-new £100m parcel hub at Hinckley Commercial Park in Leicestershire, a move that should lead to the creation of no less than 1000 new jobs.
According to a news report on the matter, the company has received permission from the Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council to develop its new £100m hub on the 33-acre site, with work being set to start at some point in late August. If everything goes according to plans, the facility is expected to be fully operational by 2015, and should be able to handle 70,000 parcels an hour.
Chief executive Dwain McDonald said: "This is another important step forward for the company and also for the region and our customers. We are a company that is growing fast and investing the proceeds back into our infrastructure to keep on improving our service."
Quite obviously, such an extensive development, will also require the implementation of a very solid access control solution.
This is exactly where Access Control UK will manage to put its expertise to good work, given the fact that we offer an extensive level of experience in designing and delivering reliable, secure and affordable high-spec solutions.
