Global Supply Chain Solutions, logistics delivery services, freight forwarding specialists, US-headquartered SEKO Logistics recently opened their own operations in Ireland to serve multinational customers prospering in one of Europe’s fastest-growing economies.
Over the last few years, SEKO Logistics has strategically expanded their global presence with major investments in key markets including, Chicago, Hong Kong, Mexico City, New York and the UK. The facility was built in response to the growing number of multinational companies based in Ireland along with the increased consumer spending being experienced.

Managing Director of SEKO Logistics in Ireland, Michael Daly said, “The amount of trade in and out of Ireland – accelerated by the strength of the Irish economy and the level of inward investment – makes Ireland the next logical step in SEKO’s strategic investment development plan. Ireland is especially important to UK, European and US brands and that’s why we are investing in our own facility and staff to give SEKO customers in Ireland and around the world the service, technology, visibility and support they need to optimize the potential of this dynamic country. We want to be fully invested here and recognized as a long-term partner.”
Chief Operating Officer EMEA for SEKO, Keith O’Brien added, “This is a natural extension of our growth in Europe and across our global network. In the last 12 months, we’ve opened major new facilities in London and Amsterdam, entered into a key strategic partnership with Hermes Germany and invested significantly to increase our presence in the US, Greater China and Mexico. This is helping us to keep pace with our customers’ growth in these markets and will continue in 2019 as we proactively seek more opportunities to grow.”
