Irish beef is big in Switzerland
Switzerland imported €200m+ of beef last year and Ireland is the leading country of origin with around a quarter (24% or €50m+) of the entire market.
The quality of Irish Beef is what is driving Ireland’s success story in Switzerland, but this success is physically delivered through fast, flexible and reliable logistics links with Ireland.
We provide temperature-controlled Dedicated (FTL) & Groupage (LTL) Services from Ireland carrying Irish Beef direct to Switzerland using our own people and fully owned fleet and facilities offering a one-stop-shop service to our customers.
