Awards 2019

Entries open as Fleet Transport Awards 2019 are launched



It’s time to take out the pens and start filling in those forms, as the 2019 edition of Ireland’s largest and most prestigious awards programme for the road transport and haulage industry has been officially launched. Mark your diaries for Thursday, 11 October 2018 when the Fleet Transport Awards 2019 Gala Awards Dinner and Networking Event will take place at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin.



17 different awards

This will be the 12th running of what has become a must-attend event for anybody and everybody working in the haulage and transport sectors. Last year over one thousand people packed into Citywest to see the best in the industry honoured for their endeavours, while availing of an unequalled opportunity to network and liaise with colleagues.

This year 17 different awards are up for grabs, including the overall Fleet Transport Irish Haulier of the Year 2019 and Fleet Transport Irish Truck of the Year 2019.

Prestigious Irish Haulier of the Year 2018

Last year Cavan based Virginia Transport won the prestigious Irish Haulier of the Year 2018 title as well as National Haulier of the Year. Ray Cole of Virginia Transport says partaking was hugely worthwhile for the company. “It was a massive achievement for all of our team. Virginia Transport is a family business and a lot of our workers have been with us for ten or twenty years. It was a great achievement for them that all of the hard work paid off, and to get the recognition from the industry to win the award.”

He highly recommends taking part to other hauliers and transport operators: “It’s a very good thing to do. It shows that you’re a good business and you can run a good show, and to win means an awful lot.”
