Parcel delivery and logistics company, DX, has announced the £3.25 million acquisition of Legal Post and First Post from First Scottish.
The deal, which is set to complete at the end of May, will combine Legal Post and First Post with DX’s exchange operations in Scotland to offer an enhanced service to both sets of customers.
Legal Post provides a document exchange and postal service in Scotland, delivering legal documentation quickly and efficiently. First Post operates a Downstream Access mail service in Scotland offering a cost effective alternative to Royal Mail’s first and second class services.
Petar Cvetkovic, chief executive officer of DX, said: “These businesses are wholly complementary to DX’s operations in Scotland and they will be stronger together for both sets of customers, increasing the number of members in a single Scottish exchange network and providing Legal Post’s members with access to DX’s existing members in the UK and Ireland.”
