New additions to Wyse Transport fleet
As their 20th anniversary approaches, Wyse Transport – the partner of choice for many of Ireland’s major freight forwarders – have boosted their impressive fleet by taking delivery of four brand new Scania trucks.
Purchased from Delaney Commercials in Naas, these stunning Next Generation 13-litre 500hp units (S500a 4x2na) come fully loaded with full leather interior, microwave and television prep, and run on a dual battery system which uses one set of batteries for only starting the vehicle, with the second set for other battery consumers. The new additions represent a major investment by Wyse Transport in their fleet which currently consists of 31 tractor units and 47 trailers.
“We pride ourselves on our modern fleet which gives our customers the peace of mind that their goods will be delivered safely and on time, every time. We’re very happy with the new trucks – we put one of them to work in Italy and Portugal straight away. We’ve also invested in three new Schmitz refrigerated trailers and have another five or six ordered,” explains company director Ken Maher.
“Both Brexit and COVID-19 have caused a lot of uncertainty, but you can’t stand still in this business. You have to keep moving and looking forward. Our tractor units are a mix of Scania and Volvo, while over half of our trailers are fridges (straight, split door and roller-bed). The rest are a mix of box trailers, curtain-siders and Euroliners, and are of various sizes.”
Providing scheduled sea, air and road freight haulage services for all industries in Ireland to and from Europe, Wyse Transport will celebrate 20 years in business next February. From humble beginnings, founders Bernard White and Ken Maher have developed an international profile for their Dublin-based operation working across all sectors and with many blue-chip companies to manage their transport and haulage requirements.
Between them, Bernard and Ken have over 40 years’ experience in all aspects of haulage, sea, air and road freight services. Bernard is responsible for the UK and European operations, specialising in air freight management, contract rate negotiation and all aspects of the business’ import and export activity.
“We’ve gradually built it up over the years. We cover all of Europe down as far as Greece. We’re often asked where the name ‘Wyse Transport’ came from. We wanted to be ‘wise’ in what we do so we just replaced the ‘i’ with a ‘y’. It’s as simple as that.”
The decision four years ago to relocate to a purpose-built premises in St Margaret’s, which is adjacent to the new north runway at Dublin Airport, has paid dividends for the company. Not only has it ensured easy access to the airport, but also to the M50, M1, Dublin Port Tunnel and all national routes. Wyse Transport employs 40 people across all of their distribution and management services. Ken is full of praise for their drivers, who have a wealth of experience in the road haulage business and have GDP training for carrying pharmaceuticals, ADR training for carrying hazardous goods, ASA training for air freight security and have also completed the full five Driver CPC courses.
Wyse Transport will handle all of your day-to-day logistical requirements whether it’s European or local. The main countries they serve outside Ireland are Italy, France, Spain, Holland, Austria and the UK.
