SEKO Logistics has opened an office and warehouse facility near the Dublin Airport in Harristown, Ireland.
    “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,” said Michael Daly, managing director of SEKO Logistics in Ireland. “Ireland is especially important to U.K., European and U.S. 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.”
    Keith O’Brien (pictured above), SEKO’s chief operating officer for EMEA, 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 U.S., Greater China and Mexico.”
    SEKO Logistics previously operated in Ireland through an agency partnership. The company said that establishing its own operation in Ireland provides it with a platform to expand further in the retail, high-tech and medical device sectors.


There have been record-high levels of imports over the past several months, primarily due to raised inventories ahead of expected tariff increases. But we are projecting declining volumes in the coming months and an overall weakness in imports for the first half of the year.
