Mulgrew Haulage was one of the big winners at the annual Export & Freight Transport & Logistics Awards.
The company was presented with the award for Top Fleet of the Year, sponsored by Mercedes Benz UK Ltd and Mercedes Benz Truck & Van (NI) Ltd, at a glittering ceremony at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast which was attended by around 700 guests from all sectors of the transport and logistics industry and compered by BBC NI sports presenter Joel Taggart.
Organised by the Hillsborough based publishers of Export & Freight magazine, 4SM (NI) Ltd, the event, now in its 17th year, is Ireland’s premier platform of recognition for those operating in the industry; it celebrates all the hard work, determination, and ongoing investment that make the industry what it is today.
The awards judges singled out Mulgrew Haulage with reference to the company’s multi-million pound investment in its fleet of trucks and trailers and to its professional team of drivers who take pride in the appearance of their trucks.
The company has a team of 10 qualified and experienced technicians who operate from a recently opened, state of the art maintenance facility to regularly service the fleet; all the vehicles have multiple cameras fitted to improve safety and prove compliance with customer requirements and road conditions, and all are fitted with the latest telematics that in addition to vehicle location data, provide a detailed analysis of driver behaviour.
Founded by Dermot Mulgrew senior in 1973, the company continues to expand its Ireland/UK activities, having already successfully established itself as one of Ireland´s leading cross-border operators, with a broad customer base that includes many blue chip companies, specifically, but not exclusively, in the soft drinks and alcoholic beverages sectors.
