One of the UK’s leading independent logistics companies, Redhead International, which recently expanded into a new 21,000 sq ft facility in Tamworth, has announced it is experiencing growing demand for its daily service to and from Ireland.
The demand for Redhead’s services to Ireland have been particularly strong from growing businesses in the Midlands that are looking to capitalise on the improving Irish economy.
In a recent report Ireland’s economy was identified as being the fastest-growing in Europe, during the three months to June, as it continues to recover from the property-market and banking collapse.
The return to growth in the UK, a long time export market for many Irish based businesses, has also provided a boost, as the country experiences a strong recovery.
Commenting on the growing business from Midlands based companies, Tony Suggitt, Redhead’s managing director said, “Since moving into our new larger facility in Tamworth we have seen demand for our services grow significantly. SME’s in the Midlands recognise the opportunities available to them in Ireland.”
Mr. Suggitt added, “It is not just Ireland, we have also seen an increase in exports across many of the 40 countries we cover, particularly France and Germany.”
Redhead services include RedNet, a pallet service for companies whose shipping needs may not be large in volume, or regular in frequency and RedDirect, a groupage service offering economical transit right across Europe for consignments of any size, shape or type.
