Derry Refrigerated Transport have named three time Olympic boxer Paddy Barnes as their new Brand Ambassador.
Managing Director, Patrick Derry, has had a keen interest in boxing from a young age, so when the opportunity arose to join forces with Paddy Barnes & Experience Epic Ltd, he knew the time was right to bring his love for boxing and haulage together.
“With further investment plans for 2018 and a new purpose built site due to open in 2019 I feel that connecting with Paddy now is a great step for us. Having our brand on BT Sport for Paddy’s fight in November is an opportunity not to be missed.
“Paddy took time to talk to some of our 180 staff and had a look around our award-winning fleet; he’s a great local guy to have as our ambassador. We would like to wish Paddy all the best in his upcoming training camp and believe Saturday 18th November will bring win number 5 in the pro game for our new Brand Ambassador,” commented Patrick.
Derry Refrigerated Transport operates an independent distribution service throughout the Island of Ireland, delivering from one pallet to a unit load of ambient, fresh or frozen product to any county in Ireland within 24 hours.
The company has invested heavily in recent years in innovative trailers and software solutions which provides customers a chill chain. It offers traceability from point of collection, on site at the warehouse and on the road to delivery point. Vehicle tracking with NIBC & Scania and temperature tracking with Thermo King gives customers additional confidence as does the company’s BRC Certification for Storage & Distribution.
Derry Refrigerated Transport also won the “Fleet of the Year” at the prestigious Export & Freight Awards recently held in the Waterfront in Belfast.
