DFDS expands Irish reach with Lucey Transport Logistics buyout


DFDS has acquired 100 per cent of the share capital of Lucey Transport Logistics Ltd based in Dublin, Ireland.

Lucey Transport Logistics is an Irish provider of transport and logistics solutions, primarily to consumer goods companies.

Door to door transports are provided for full- and part-loads as well as distribution services. The logistics solutions include warehousing, inventory management, bonded storage, and product rework and labelling.

Solutions are supported by a distribution centre in Dublin and regional warehousing facilities in key locations across Ireland and Northern Ireland totalling 38,000 metres-squared.

Operations also include 70 trucks and more than 400 trailers. Lucey Transport Logistics was founded in 1932 and has 240 employees.

Annual revenue was €32 million ($32.8 million) in 2021.

Lucey Transport Logistics adds domestic Irish transport and logistics capabilities that complement DFDS’s existing activities in the region.

These include transport and logistics solutions based in Ireland and Northern Ireland, door-door container and trailer solutions between Ireland, the Continent, and the Nordics, as well as a freight ferry route between Ireland and France (Rosslare-Dunkirk).

“The acquisition of Lucey Transport Logistics greatly enhances our Irish domestic offerings, and complements our existing international solutions. We now offer more comprehensive supply chain solutions in the region underpinned by a network covering the entire island of Ireland,” said Niklas Andersson, Executive Vice President and Head of Logistics Division.

The transaction is subject to approval by relevant competition authorities.

The transaction has no material impact on DFDS’s outlook for 2022.
