A specialist in third party supply chain warehousing and logistics, the firm conducts chilled distribution schemes for Irish, UK and European mainline retailers, servicing many on a daily basis. Supply chain functions encompass warehousing, picking and distribution for ambient, chilled and frozen products, with Oakland acknowledged as operating a highly successful and unique distressed load management service within its industry sector.

Both Ciara and Declan are top calibre people who have already brought a great deal to the organisation. I am delighted to welcome them to the team.”
