Warehousing and logistics business, Oakland International Ireland, has won the title of Logistics Company of the Year Award at The Irish Logistics and Transport Awards, in Dublin on Thursday 20th March. Oakland International Ireland joint MD, Mark Caffrey, stated: “We are absolutely delighted to have won, and in only our fifth year of trading. It’s an incredible achievement for the team and for the business as a whole.” The event was attended by over 450 specialists from across the logistics and transport industry, all vying for the accolade of attaining one of the eighteen award titles up for grabs; with the roar of jubilation from the Oakland team tangible as they went to the podium to collect their award. Oakland International MD, Dean Attwell, added: “Oakland’s practical know-how and success in food storage, and our broad retailer distribution network, continues to be a winner, attracting interest from producers and suppliers in the food and drinks industry looking to extend retailer reach both within Ireland and the UK.” Officially launched in Ashbourne, Co Meath in 2009, Oakland has since created a much sought after logistics solution, focusing on innovation to drive business forward, with the company today working with local Irish, UK and European producers and suppliers who require a cost effective supply chain route to their retail customer base. With Ireland’s food export drive being one of the cornerstones of growth within the Irish economy, Oakland has been working closely many Irish export agencies to develop and support Irish producers of all sizes to access the UK retail market through its long-established UK multi–temperature platform.
