The family-owned business was first established 90 years ago in Millstreet, Co. Cork.

The company employs over 250 staff, making it one of Ireland’s largest logistics companies.

Lucey Transport Logistics has distribution operations in Dublin, Clonmel, Cork and Lurgan. As part of the acquisition, DFDS will now operate these centres along with their substantial trucking operations and 400 trailers.

The Cork firm provides distribution and logistics services primarily to consumer goods companies.

Lucey Transport Logistics offers a range of logistics solutions to customers, including warehousing, inventory management, bonded storage, and product rework and labelling.


Millstreet Tidy Towns

As the ground breaking has begun on our latest project in the Pollinator Park, we are asking for small donations to help us continue keeping Millstreet clean, safe and bright for all residents and visitors.
A huge amount of effort is put in by our volunteers each year – countless hours of administration as well as physical work, and with that comes added expenses. After the past 2 years our funds are now completely depleted.
Please if you can, all donations are welcome!
