London, UK—Time-critical logistics leader Carousel Logistics is further investing in its handling and Customs clearance services for customers in mainland Europe and Ireland after strengthening its Ireland operations with the acquisition of Dublin-based Alltrans.

Carousel and Alltrans, having successfully integrated their IT and operational systems, are now investing in additional sites at Dublin airport.

“We have rapidly established our network in Ireland, allowing more flexibility and swift fulfilment of parts and products between Ireland and mainland Europe,” said Andrew Lowery, Managing Director, UK, Carousel.

“The multiple rotations we have operating from Europe into Ireland, reflects the dynamic market we operate in and exemplifies our ambition to become Europe’s leading time-critical in-night logistics operator.

“Full in-house handling and Customs clearance capabilities, together with our ability to offer the most competitive late cut-off times, ensure a time-critical service that is second to none.”

Carousel provides end-to-end solutions for aftermarket, spare parts, returns management, medical logistics, agricultural, construction, and the automotive sectors where precision, business continuity, and customer satisfaction are essential.

Key services offered by Carousel include nationwide next-day coverage, same-day domestic services, international ad-hoc services, and breakbulk distribution.

“The success of the acquisition of Alltrans and subsequent rapid IT integration has led us to create a model template for future acquisitions and integrations,” Lowery continues. “This puts us in an excellent position to capitalise on this momentum and continue expanding operations across Europe.”

As part of ongoing growth plans for its network, DANX Carousel recently signed a joint venture with Polish logistics specialist ILS in March, improving its time-critical and in-night logistics solutions in Eastern Europe.
