First Scottish Group exchanged contracts on 9th May 2016 for the sale of the trade and assets of Legal Post and First Post to DX, the independent parcels, mail and logistics operator. Completion of the deal is expected at the end of May. DX will combine Legal Post and First Post with its existing operations in Scotland to offer an enhanced service to both sets of customers.
The DX, Legal Post and First Post businesses are wholly complementary and they will be stronger together, increasing the number of members in a single Scottish exchange network and providing access for Legal Post’s members to DX’s existing members in England, Wales and Ireland.
Legal Post and First Post staff will be transferring to DX so there will be no interruption to the service you receive. Invoices will be raised as normal by Legal Post and First Post until the end of the month, after which DX will take over this responsibility.
At First Scottish Group, we will continue to focus on developing the group’s core search and document management operations. The sale of the non-core postal businesses will allow us to continue to invest in new, market leading products and added value services, such as our Title Rectification Service and recently launched Plans Support Service. We will also continue to invest in new and improved technology designed to meet the changing needs of our clients’ businesses.
