DPD Ireland - 29 years of delivery expertise
Interlink Ireland Ltd was founded in 1986 with 10 depots and a central hub based in Athlone, Co. Westmeath. We are now Ireland’s largest dedicated parcel delivery company with 38 depots throughout the country handling in excess of 11 million parcels per year.
In 2000, Interlink Ireland became part of GeoPost S.A., the parcels and express division of La Poste, the French Post Office. By 2006, business had grown to such an extent that the company committed €18 million to the development of a new hub and headquarters in Athlone.
In February 2008, Interlink Ireland changed its name to DPD. La Poste, united its express parcel companies under one single brand - DPD - providing customers with one, united, delivery partner throughout Europe and beyond.
Seen as one of the key innovators within the parcel delivery field, DPD’s technological developments like real time, on line track and trace, Predict™, DPD Parcel Wizard™ and “in flight” delivery options, have completely revolutionised how parcels are delivered. Constantly focused on the evolving needs of customer and consumer, DPD leads the field in parcel delivery technology.
DPD Ireland is set to expand its Athlone operation in 2016, doubling its hub capacity, to ensure that the business is futureproofed for years to come.
