DHL and the Home Delivery Network merge

DHL and the Home Delivery Network have merged, forming the largest delivery fleet in the UK, outside the Post Office, under the new name, Yodel. AstSigns were successful in winning the contract to provide the entire vehicle wraps for this stable of vehicles.

The first phase was to provide vehicle wraps for 400 vehicles in four different colours. AstSigns spoke to Robert Horne who recommended Avery supreme wrapping film which has a repositionable slide-able adhesive system to allow much faster application, resulting in saving 1/3rd of the wrapping labour per vehicle. Avery were also able to accurately Pantone match colours due to their ability to use a white adhesive in the same way Pantone colours are printed onto white paper.

Stuart Day, AstSigns says: “AstSigns is an award winning expert in the provision of vehicle wraps and is currently the Sign Industry Award Business of the Year. Vehicle wrapping has numerous benefits for businesses, including marketing, branding and improved residual value of the vehicles.”

Mark Aston, managing director, AstSigns said: “This is quite simply great news for AstSigns and we are very happy to be working with Yodel.”
