A fleet with flair
Including the magnificent showcase Coca-Cola truck, Kennedy International’s stunning fleet is one of the largest and most impressive in Ireland. This market-leading, long-serving family business – which provides a vast range of transportation solutions across Ireland, the UK and Europe – will be bringing some of their trucks to the 2017 Full of the Pipe show.
“We’ll definitely be going to the show,” Joe Kennedy confirmed when he took a few minutes out of his busy schedule in late April. “We haven’t decided yet what we’ll be bringing but I’d imagine we’ll bring seven or eight over to Punchestown anyway. We go to a few shows and Full of the Pipe is one of the best now.”
If he gets the weekend off, Joe will take his own striking Scania R500 – a wonderful unit which looks fantastic both inside and outside, with the interior fully customised. “I’ve been driving that truck for as long as I can remember,” he notes.
As for the switch to Punchestown Racecourse, Joe adds: “It’ll be handy for us anyway because it’s not too far from here. I’ve been at shows in Punchestown before and it’s a very handy location and central, so there should be a big crowd there.
“It should be a good weekend. A lot of other truckers in and around us are going as well, so we are all looking forward to it.” And Joe is pleased to report that business is going well for Kennedy International at present: “We’re running a fleet of 52 at the moment, so it’s not too bad,” he concludes.
