Ace Express Freight has three locations from which we manage all of our Warehousing and Logistical functions, Blakes Cross, M1 and Kinsealy. The combined capacity of the three facilities is 235,000 square feet. In Blakes Cross we have a large Transit Warehouse where we operate a hub and spoke function which feeds directly into our network of trusted partners and providers across Ireland, UK and Europe.
In our Logistical Warehouse in Blakes Cross we manage Stock Inventory for key accounts as well as providing a dedicated and unique Account Management service. The Transit function is operational 24 hours a day, and all staff are fully trained and have a vested interest in the Company Pillars (Safety, Quality, Cost, Delivery, People and Environment).
Our state of the art approach to freight management is driven by frequent scanning of freight, with a weekly average in excess of 30,000 scans per week, with close to 1000 of these relating to the nightly HUB activity and the remaining number associated with general freight movements throughout the network.
The Transport Department within Ace Express Freight is predominantly managed centrally from Blakes Cross. The Transport Manager fronts a team who are involved in the day to day organisation of transport planning, special services and administrative duties. They are also involved in the unique and complex task of matching the freight profile to the current vehicle profile to meet customer requirements on collections and deliveries.
All of the fleet are fitted with GPS Tracking, drivers fully uniformed, and real time customer signatures are captured via PDA Technology. The fleet is liveried with Ace Express Freight Corporate Branding and offers exclusivity of service.
Our Transport Department can adapt to specific customer requests such as vehicles with tail lifts, truck mounted FLT’s and Hiabs. Special services and solutions including low loaders and cranes can be arranged. The transportation of Hazardous goods can also be faciliated and routed through our network. All drivers are GDPR certified as well as being compilant on deliveries into Pharmaceutical and Construction Industry sectors.
Ace Express Freight are currently and have been using a wide range of Hauliers across Ireland, UK, and Europe for a considerable length of time. This long term partnership approach has allowed professional relationships to grow which compliments the services we offer for our customers. Our Hub network is made up of 11 members which give us 24 hour service across all of the 32 counties within Ireland.
We have daily import and export loads both specific to individual customers and also through our regular services with our UK partners. Further to this we have a weekly service to Europe with our European providers.
