Parcels firm moves to Mechelen

Direct Parcel Distribution (DPD), the international parcels service owned by France Post, is to move to a new sorting center at Mechelen South in Flanders.

The investment of some eight million euro follows the company’s continuing growth in Belgium. Sorting capacity at the new premises is 9,000 parcels an hour, double the capacity of DPD’s previous facility.

The location forms part of the Mechelen South Logistics complex, a new logistics center developed by the industrial property developer Eurinpro. Sited close to the E19 motorway, the complex has some 30,000 square meters of space and attached office facilities.
