Family values with professional standards

The personal touch guaranteed at McGeown Logistics Ltd

Our company can trace its beginnings all of the way back to 1971, when Francis McGeown began his one man haulage business, transporting consignments from across Europe and the UK to Ireland. Over the next twenty years, the McGeown name would become a familiar sight on the roads as his fleet grew, thanks to its reputation for service and reliability.

Today, we’re called McGeown Logistics, and while much has changed over time, some things haven’t, including our dedication to providing a professional, courteous and punctual service, a policy of operating a fleet which is modern and efficient, maintained and presented to our own high standards.

Of course much has changed over time, and

with the distinctive livery which has changed very little over all of that time, our trucks have become a familiar sight across Ireland, the UK and Europe.

Even since our earliest days, we’ve always held great value in our appearance, and so our fleet have always been main

Established in 1971, by Francis McGeown our name has been a familiar sight on the highways of Europe, Ireland and the UK, providing a reliable connection between our customers and their suppliers across the continent.

Even then, founder Francis McGeown recognised how a strong company identity reflected on his professional approach, and so the McGeown fleet have always been turned out

are a leading force in transporting all types of goods into and out of Ireland, with daily services across the UK and Europe, with many valued contacts Europe wide.

A professional, reliable and friendly service is the cornerstone of Gary’s approach to his transport business. Their lengthy list of long term customers is a result of the company’s strong commitment to customer service and satisfaction.

We pride ourselves on our personal approach to business and all of our loads are driver accompanied. We work with our customers to provide customised solutions to meet their specific transportation needs

Based outside Newry City, they operate a fleet of over 15 refrigerated trailers, 30 Euroliners, flat trailers and Low Loaders, with a modern fleet of Scanias, Volvos, Dafs and Man Trucks.

Founded in 1971 by Francis McGeown, starting off with one truck, they now operate a fleet of 28 trucks and 50 trailers.

Francis son Gary is obviously a chip off the old block because after learning all the tricks of the trade in his father’s company, he went on out his own four years ago and set up McGeown Logistics Ltd.

In a short space of time, McGeown Logistics has developed a reputation as a leading International haulage company specialising in refrigerated services.

This has been achieved by offering excellent customer service, investing in a modern fleet and offering a UK, Ireland and Europe wide service.

They specialise in all types of refrigerated transport including: chilled, frozen and dry products.

“We transport refrigerated goods to Sweden and dry cargo to Spain while we also operate a multi drop service throughout Holland, Belgium and Germany,” Gary revealed to Irish Trucker & Light Commercials.

“I concentrate on the continental work and we run a fleet of 10 Volvo, 6 DAF, 10 Scania and 2 MAN trucks while we mainly use Euroliner trailers and fridges.”

A professional, reliable and friendly service is the cornerstone of Gary’s approach to his transport business. Their lengthy list of long term customers is a result of the company’s strong commitment to customer service and satisfaction.

The ninth staging of the Full of the Pipe show this year certainly lived up to expectations as truckers from all over Ireland and beyond flocked to Punchestown Racecourse to proudly show off their trucks looking their best.

Gary attended for the first time and entered three of his company’s trucks. It’s fair to say that he enjoyed the break from the company’s busy schedule.

“It was my first year at the show and it was a very enjoyable weekend. I usually do truck runs but that was the first static truck show I brought trucks to. It was very well organised and I’m looking forward to next year’s show already!”

Having their fleet of trucks and trailers always in pristine condition is a major source of pride for Gary and his team of 30 employees at McGeown Logistics.

“We take great pride in the appearance of our fleet and having nice trucks in good condition is a big thing about my yard. Our trucks are our shop window and I think having them looking well makes a big difference.

“All of our drivers are hands on when it comes to looking after their trucks. We keep one driver to one truck and it is their responsibility to look after their truck. Having different drivers move from truck to truck tends to lead to problems in our experience.

“We are constantly updating our fleet and took delivery of a new DAF as recently as July.”

McGeown Logistics are also currently in the process of expanding their warehouse and storage capacity and Gary expects that work to be completed by the end of the year.

“Business is going along fine. We had one slow month this year, March was very quiet but things picked up again in April. I’d be optimistic about future because there are signs that the economy picking up,” he concluded.
