Pall-Ex Group has launched a network in the Republic of Ireland which offers a “permanent post-Brexit solution” to new customs and border restrictions.

Operating from its Dublin facility, Pall-Ex Ireland already has 16 members and is currently on the hunt for more.

The official launch of Pall-Ex Ireland on 1 May, at one of the network’s warehouses, brought together staff, network members, local, national and European politicians with speeches from key personnel, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Jack Chambers, Ireland’s Minister of State at the Department of Transport with special responsibility for international and road transport and logistics, spoke at the event and joined the teams in celebrating the launch of Pall-Ex Ireland. 

Bernard McSweeney, responsible for the operational side of Pall-Ex Ireland, said: “The Pall-Ex Ireland team has extensive experience in freight forwarding and customs clearance, we are ideally positioned to support a range of businesses with their local, national and International freight requirements.”

“Now we have officially launched, we look forward to welcoming additional members to the network, ensuring we provide the best cross-border solution in the sector.”

Sue Buchanan, Pall-Ex Group international director, commented: “Due to significant customs changes in recent years, Pall-Ex requires a permanent post-Brexit solution to ensure we can continue offering excellent delivery services to Southern Ireland.

“Harnessing our award-winning technology system, Nexus, means that customers can seamlessly move freight between the UK and Ireland, in addition to offering a broad range of services, including next-day delivery, to the majority of Ireland.

“The extensive experience of our team has ensured a smooth transition for customers using Pall-Ex in and out of Ireland, with an ongoing guarantee that quality remains at the forefront of these services.”
