Our site is one of the most advanced freight handling sites in the UK and offers a solution for almost any type of freight, no matter what the size or weight.
Starting off as a small transport company, Irish Groupage expanded to offering a next day and 48 hour delivery service to anywhere in Ireland. The company has continued to grow throughout the years and now offers UK and European coverage.
In House Packing
After the successful growth of Irish Groupage, MD Andrew Morris went on to set up an in house export packing company. Working in partnership with Irish Groupage, the freight would be collected and brought back to site for onward packing. The freight would then be handed to a 3rd party for shipping across the globe.
With an increase in global shipments from our packing department the need for our own shipping division was rapidly increasing. Trade Freight International was born to handle all shipments, both local and international, making us one of the first British companies to handle all aspects of freight handling under one roof.
The International Logistics Centre marked the day all of our companies came together. We send our own vehicles out to collect the freight, bring it back to our site for packing and then ship it across the world. All of this is done under one roof which means lower costs for you, less hassle and an all round better shipping experience – time and time again.
London Office Opened
With further growth of the business a decision was made to open a second office in London to deal predominantly with FCL and Project Shipping. This strategic decision meant we are in the ideal location to tap directly into the main carriers and provide a more customer focused approach to shipping.
