Keelings Logistics Solutions has announced it has retained a 12 month contract for the management of Tesco’s Chilled and Frozen Distribution Centre in Ballymun, Ireland, following a recent Tender process.

The company has worked alongside Tesco since its first chilled distribution opened in 1998 and has retained the management of the distribution centre after Tesco opened its new Greenfield site in August 2003.

Keelings Logistic Solutions is a wholly owned subsidiary of Keelings Group, a family business which has over 85 years growing, and fresh produce supply chain experience.  Keelings Group employs approximately 2,000 people.

Caroline Keeling, Keelings Group CEO comments: “We worked very hard to retain our partnership and we are delighted with the final outcome. It is great news for our people in Ballymun and I’d like to personally thank them all for their continued dedication to the Keelings and Tesco businesses.  We look forward to many more years of continued service.”

Sheila Gallagher, Tesco Commercial Director, says: “Tesco is very proud to work with Keelings, one of Ireland’s very successful family businesses.  Both companies have worked together over many years and we congratulate them on competitively winning our fresh and frozen warehouse operations contract.  Keelings Logistic Solutions has worked hard for Tesco and we appreciate their partnership with us.”
