DX opens new Security Control Room
Investment Programme Continues with New Security Control Room
DX, a leading provider of delivery solutions, including parcel freight, secure, courier, 2-Man and logistics services, is pleased to announce the latest step in its Group investment programme with the opening of its new Security Control Room in Tipton, West Midlands.
The Security Control Room will allow for the centralised monitoring of CCTV, alarms and access controls across all of DX’s sites. As well as increasing the security of the entirety of DX’s network, this facility will allow for enhanced live monitoring of health and safety and operational compliance protocols, increasing the efficiency and safety of its depots.
This is the latest step in the £10m investment programme underpinning DX’s growth ambitions, following the successful completion of the first stage of its turnaround with a return to profitability last year.
The programme aims to improve Group efficiency and capacity across both DX Express and DX Freight divisions. Approximately £6m of investment in the Group’s technology, equipment, sites and fleet is scheduled for 2021, which will include the opening of a further three depots for DX Freight and three depots for DX Express.

“I am pleased that we have upgraded and centralised our security operations with the opening of this new facility. This is just the latest example of our commitment to investing in DX in order to support our ambitious growth plans for the business whilst maintaining our high standards for service and security.”
