Elaine Kerr, DPD UK CEO commented, "This is a very positive result for us, and I'm delighted for the whole team. We've topped this poll more times than any other carrier and with more than 8,000 people voting it is always an important indicator for the industry, especially coming so close to the peak Christmas period. The sector has grown rapidly in recent years and, as a result, there has inevitably been greater pressure and scrutiny on all carriers.
