Nightline at night

Newly-created Nightline International, which was established when Nightline restructured last year, hopes to double the size of its business by 2017.

MD John Quinn said the company has set out “solid foundations for long-term success” in the year since it was formed. This includes an increase in sales both in the UK and abroad, and being selective in the customers it works with.

Nightline International was formed alongside parcel delivery division Nightline Delivers and warehousing subsidiary Nightline Logistics, when parent Nightline Logistics Group restructured last year.

Quinn said: “To predict a doubling in size so soon after being set up might sound ambitious but I believe that we have the capacity and the capability to sustain the growth which we have seen already and meet our targets.

“It has been a year constant development and quite amazing growth, all of which has flowed from a desire to put the right structures in place throughout the business.

“We have been selective in our recruitment and in the relationships which we have struck with partners across Ireland, the UK, Europe and much further afield."

He added that in the last 12 months the division has carried over 100,000 shipments for customers, ranging from small parcels to 26-tonne loads.
