Your delivery experts
Ireland's first electric parcel delivery depot is set to open its doors at the end of April 2019 at DPD Ireland's newest location, Dublin’s Docklands Innovation Park on East Wall Road.
Our all new electric fleet will serve the Dublin City Centre area, providing a green final mile delivery solution to consumers in the area.
DPD Ireland’s new electric fleet, comprises vehicles in a range of sizes from small Paxsters whose versatile size allows easy movement throughout the city streets, to the Goupils and LDVs which will carry larger parcels.
Smart Urban Delivery has been a key focal point for DPD for several years. DPD Ireland was the first carrier to offer our customers communication regarding their delivery time window. While our operational efficiency has been driven by innovative technological solutions like our DPD Predict ™ service, our commitment now is even more visible with our great new electric fleet and depot.
Making Dublin Cleaner One Delivery At A Time
Our ElectriCity initiative has been inspired by our commitment to our Corporate Social Responsibility. As a carrier, we have a responsibility to the environment and to our customers. Every parcel delivered by our electric fleet is directly reducing carbon impact. We’re making Dublin cleaner, one delivery at a time! Our distinct floral motif is inspired by a commitment to becoming more clean and green, increasing our transparency and connecting more closely with our community.
The Irish Government has set a target of having 10% of all vehicles on the road by 2020 electric. There were less than 4,000 electric cars in Ireland on the road at the start of 2018. Ireland has also set itself the target of ending the sale of cars powered solely by fossil fuels by 2030.
At DPD Ireland we believe in continuing to move forward with our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts and are driven to helping Ireland meet these targets.
DPD Ireland has sourced a range of electric vehicles to suit our parcel profile. The nippy little Paxster is ideal for city centre deliveries, while the Goupil and LDV have greater capacity and are more suitable for larger parcel delivery and customer collections.

DPDgroup’s sustainability programme, Driving Change™, is inherent to who we are and is fuelled by our straightforward, responsive and can-do approach.
In 2016, DPDgroup joined the UN Global Compact and committed to its Ten Principles related to human rights, labour conditions, environmental preservation, and anti-corruption.
DPDgroup’s commitment is to make every parcel delivered carbon neutral at no extra cost to our customers. We do this by measuring C02 emissions, striving to reduce them and by offsetting the remaining emissions. “We measure, we reduce, we offset”.
DPDgroup had targeted itself to reduce road transport C02 emissions by 10% per parcel by 2020 when compared to 2013 levels - this target was achieved by 2016!
In 2016, DPDgroup delivered 1.07 bn carbon neutral parcels. More than 6.2million kms were travelled by the DPDgroup's alternative energy fleet.
More than 863,000 tonnes of C02 were offset.
DPDgroup is the leader within the Courier Express Parcel Market at voluntary carbon compensation.
