DFDS Expands Irish Logistics Network
To further expand and develop their European logistics network, DFDS has acquired 100% of the share capital of Lucey Transport Logistics Ltd based in Dublin, Ireland.
Niklas Andersson, Executive Vice President and Head of Logistics Division, said, “the acquisition of Lucey Transport Logistics greatly enhances our Irish domestic offerings, and complements our existing international solutions. We now offer more comprehensive supply chain solutions in the region underpinned by a network covering the entire island of Ireland.”

Operations also include 70 trucks and more than 400 trailers. Lucey Transport Logistics was founded in 1932 and has 240 employees. Annual revenue was DKK 240m (EUR 32m) in 2021.
Lucey Transport Logistics adds domestic Irish transport and logistics capabilities that complement DFDS’ existing activities in the region.
