The manufacture of food and drink products is Ireland’s most important indigenous industry with a turnover approaching €24 billion, which explains why it is such an important area for Woodland Group, says Kevin Brady, Managing Director Woodland Group Ireland.

Woodland Group is well poised to fulfill this need with a strong, flexible global network that has the skilled workforce to support our customers fully. Our core values focus heavily on product knowledge, service and operational excellence,” he points out. “Our increasing investment into the food and beverage sector marks an exciting new chapter for the Woodland Group and believe our renowned tailor made solutions will offer clear and meaningful benefits to those involved in the industry.”

Established by Kevin Stevens in 1988, Woodland Group is an independent global freight forwarding and supply chain specialist that provides a full catalogue of logistic options including ocean freight, airfreight, European distribution, value added services, contract logistics, UK distribution, warehousing, fulfilment, 3PL, supply chain management, reverse logistics and Customs consultancy.
