Hannon Transport opens Paris hub

Craigavon, Northern Ireland: Hannon Transport has set up a hub in Rungis International Market (pictured above) just south of Paris and the world’s largest fresh produce market.

The move is in response to concerns over Brexit. A special worry to Northern Irish businesses that fear complications complying with new customs and tariff regulations once the transition period ends.

Hannon Transport, managed by Liam Mundow, a fluent French speaker, will initially have two people permanently on the Paris site but hopes to grow this number.

“We are offering a daily service from Rungis to anywhere in Ireland for both chilled and frozen food produce, horticultural items, fresh cut flowers and dry freight,” said Hannon marketing manager Owen McLaughlin.

“We can accommodate either full-loads or groupage orders from as little as one pallet. Typical delivery is within 48 hours with all loads carried on our own equipment with full traceability.

“Rungis Market also offers an unparalleled range of logistics services linking it to suppliers right across Europe, and it allows us to link local businesses with many more suppliers from across France, Italy, Spain and Portugal, who deliver there daily.”

“We are the first logistics company in Northern Ireland to set up in Rungis, which offers an unparalleled range of logistics services,” McLaughlin said.

“Equipped with enormous warehouses and a rail terminal, the national wholesale market develops last mile logistics solutions as part of a sustainable strategy.”
