Nolan Transport Officially Open New €12 million Global Logistics Park in Wexford

Nolan Transport Officially Open New €12 million Global Logistics Park in Wexford 

Nolan Transport has stepped forward and invested in the future of today’s supply chain requirements.  The world has seen unprecedented demand for warehousing facilities caused by changes in customer needs and disruption in the supply chain stemming from Brexit and Covid. 

Recognising these disruptions and changes, Nolan Transport is putting itself and Wexford forward as a global leader for transportation and logistics services to its customers both locally and internationally. 

Nolan Transport, founded by Jimmy and his wife Joan ( christened Johanna) in 1963 celebrates 60 years in business this year. Starting in 1963 with a single truck and only the two of them working the business, today it has grown to provide the Supply Chain services of Transportation, Warehousing, Customs and Systems to its Customers.  It prides itself on being one of Wexford’s leading employers with over 1,000 people and operating over 2000 trailers and 700 trucks of owner asset-based fleet. 

With its main hub already operating out of New Ross, this is its second Wexford-based facility. In addition, it operates offices internationally in the UK, France, and Spain and this week also opens its new office in Holland with further expansion plans into other European locations planned over the next 5 years.

The new global logistics park will house its warehousing services. This is Phase 1 of the 5 phase visions for this park. It has been specifically designed to facilitate its customer’s needs and is already in high demand with its global customers seeking out high-end warehousing requirements. 

The warehouse facility has been constructed to meet international standards and offers a specialist wing for bioscience, clean room facilities and a containment wing. Additionally incorporating a sustainability plan, the building will be powered via solar roof panels coupled with in-built smart controls for energy. The company is also seeking options to add on railway connections and on-site wind turbines in the coming years. 

Today the 11th of January 2023, the Nolan Family opens the “ Johanna 1 Building” named in honour of their dear mother Joan, very much a strong woman of Ireland and an inspiration to all who sadly passed away suddenly on 16 December 2022, 

The new €12 million 150,000 cubic metres high bay warehouse facility is the first of five planned warehouses of the company’s â‚¬50 million vision planned over the next years to get to Phase 5 at the global logistic park on the 35-acre site just off of the Rosslare road in county Wexford.

Commenting at the official opening event Noel Nolan, Director of the Warehousing Division of Nolan Transport says, “This first phase of our facility and € 12 million development will initially create and sustain 30 Wexford jobs in phase one. I am very proud and excited about this venture. 

The ground floor measurement is 80,000 square feet with nine storeys of racking sitting within that space with 22,000 available pallet locations with a bespoke state-of-the-art design smart warehouse management system. This enables us to offer a complete end-to-end logistics and warehousing solution to suit a range of occupiers from SMEs to large manufacturing and distribution companies and we are delighted to have exchanged contracts with a number of international brands already.

As the UK and European markets continue to adapt their supply chain and distribution models following Brexit, the market is experiencing record levels of demand and take-up. The market circumstances coupled with our new facility and our 60-year-old Transportation Company, Nolan Transport means that we are ideally positioned to unlock opportunities to deliver high-quality and sustainable warehousing solutions, deliver more jobs and deliver more economic benefits for Wexford and the wider region all the while, working even more closely with Rosslare Europort with its new direct to Europe and its UK ferry operators.

This is just phase one of five phases and we are already looking forward to continuing to re-invest in the region and build capacity for further job creation through the next development phases in our â‚¬50 Million anticipated sustainable development in our Wexford Global Logistics Park. 

​Nolan Transport is currently ISO credited and is status pending for Seveso licencing and full AEO customs status which enables the company to work even more closely with international operators managing high-value goods, and offer a bonded warehousing service.
