Delivering reliable water solutions to DPD

DPD are one of Europe’s leading parcel groups and are owned by France’s La Poste; the second largest postal group in Europe.

They are the UK’s favourite parcel delivery company – providing innovative, high quality and time sensitive solutions. The DPD UK team exceeds 15,000 people, operating over 10,000 vehicles from 87 locations and delivering over 260m parcels a year.

The DPD team approached us seeking reliable drinking water solutions that would improve their environmental footprint, and be suitable for their large business based across the UK.

Conclusion

Since 2020, the company has provided its people (approximately 22,000) with reusable metal bottles and has installed drinking water stations at its 87 depots, ensuring that the bottles can be easily refilled.

DPD estimates this has helped save over 1 million plastic bottles, corresponding to over 82.8 tonnes of plastic – and, based on its people filling up on average twice a day, five days a week, an estimated 3.75 million plastic bottles of water will no longer be needed.
