DPD CEO Dwain McDonald says: “This is a huge leap forward for Interlink Express and DPD Group. The combination of the Interlink Express proposition and the incredible strength of the DPD brand and breadth of services is a really compelling one. DPD is one of the European parcel delivery super brands now, and it makes sense to invest further in that brand.
“The move will bring Interlink Express more into line with the DPD Group but enable it to continue to focus on what it does best; providing a great local service with nationwide, and increasingly, global reach.
“While we’ve historically run two different brands in the UK, we’ve shared services and had duel branded depots in certain locations for years.”
