DPD and CitySprint

CitySprint and DPD UK join forces

9th August 2021, 11:11am in News by Amy Newham

Last Friday, DPD UK announced that CitySprint is set to become part of DPDgroup, subject to regulatory clearance.

DPD is the second-largest express parcel courier service and successfully deliver over 5.2 million parcels worldwide every day. CitySprint is the leading choice for UK businesses and individuals who need to send documents and small parcels for urgent same-day delivery.

The acquisition is one of DPD's most significant investments to date. The investment results from increased demand for same day and next day deliveries, a trend that has accelerated since the pandemic. Joining DPD will enable CitySprint to expand its same-day delivery offering.

How will the acquisition affect me?

Luckily, Interparcel customers will not be affected by this change because they already get the best of both worlds; economical next-day delivery and speedy same-day delivery all in one platform!

When will the acquisition take place?

The contract is subject to approval by the Competition and Markets Authority but is expected to be complete later this year.
