Carousel’s recent acquisition of Dublin-based Alltrans has boosted its Ireland network as part of ongoing expansion plans in Europe
Time-critical logistics leader Carousel Logistics is further investing in its handling and Customs clearance services for customers in mainland Europe and Ireland after strengthening its Ireland operations with the acquisition of Dublin-based Alltrans.
Carousel and Alltrans, having successfully integrated their IT and operational systems, are now investing in additional sites at Dublin airport.
“We have rapidly established our network in Ireland, allowing more flexibility and swift fulfilment of parts and products between Ireland and mainland Europe,” said Andrew Lowery, Managing Director, UK, Carousel.
“The multiple rotations we have operating from Europe into Ireland, reflects the dynamic market we operate in and exemplifies our ambition to become Europe’s leading time-critical in-night logistics operator.
“Full in-house handling and Customs clearance capabilities, together with our ability to offer the most competitive late cut-off times, ensure a time-critical service that is second to none.”
Carousel provides end-to-end solutions for aftermarket, spare parts, returns management, medical logistics, agricultural, construction, and the automotive sectors where precision, business continuity, and customer satisfaction are essential.
Key services offered by Carousel include nationwide next-day coverage, same-day domestic services, international ad-hoc services, and breakbulk distribution.
“The success of the acquisition of Alltrans and subsequent rapid IT integration has led us to create a model template for future acquisitions and integrations,” Lowery continues.
“This puts us in an excellent position to capitalise on this momentum and continue expanding operations across Europe.”
As part of ongoing growth plans for its network, DANX Carousel recently signed a joint venture with Polish logistics specialist ILS in March, improving its time-critical and in-night logistics solutions in Eastern Europe.
For over 24 years now Alltrans, through our excellent staff and senior management team, have provided an extensive transport service to some of Irelands’ best known companies. Quality driven through continuous customer feedback, we believe our success is down to careful selection of the most suited staff, efficient and modern vehicles and state of the art Information Technology. The demand for our services has resulted in continued strategic growth and expansion. In 2014 Alltrans moved to join forces with Irelands Premium Pallet Network – PalletXpress which offered a modern logistics HUB (130,000 square feet on a 6 Acre site), based in Huntstown Business Park , Dublin 11. This has opened up many new opportunities through an improved distribution and professional 26 member network. Our dedicated Contract Logistics continues to provide dedicated vans and HGVs to many of Irelands Blue Chip companies.
