Woodside Group buy All-Route Shipping
The Woodside Group, established almost 50 years ago and still a family owned and managed business, will now have a combined turnover of £50 million, employing 400 people. The Woodside Group has established itself as a market leader in road transport and logistics throughout the U.K and Ireland with an unparalleled range of services.
All-Route Shipping is one of Ireland’s leading freight forwarding companies providing a wide range of services. It operates a full worldwide freight forwarding service predominately by sea but also by air, allowing a full door-to-door service. All-Route has HMRC approved bonded warehouse facilities and also provides a direct electronic connection to HMRC giving fast clearance to imports and exports.
Robert Woodside, Group Director of The Woodside Group outlined the rationale for the acquisition: "We are confident that the additional range of services which All-Route Shipping offers, will generate many additional benefits to the existing and new customers of both All-Route Shipping and The Woodside Group."
