John Pake O’Toole

Our present status as Ireland’s premier food Logistics company can be traced back to the 1940’s when John Patrick O’Toole purchased a Commer lorry in a bid to establish a local agricultural delivery business. Based in Moycullen, this early foray into small scale Connemara logistics proved massively successful and the company expanded into general haulage serving the area until John Pake’s untimely death in 1963 at the young age of 53.

John Pake’s son Larry also had a lifelong dream of setting up his own road haulage company, & in 1996 with help of his own family the dream became a reality   .

A family owned transport company.

In 1996, the O’Toole family, Larry, his son Laurence and daughter Mary came together and set up O’Toole Transport Ltd as a family run business. Initially the Company only a handful of prospective customers and 3 fully committed family members, O’Toole Transport set out on a path that would lead not only to full family employment but to a total full-time staff of 165 employees.

Our first vehicle, a Scania 93M230 was pivotal in helping us to become a reliable carrier. In early 2000, we became heavily involved in transport for the food industry, developing our network of industry contacts ever further and expanding our fleet to its current size of over 95 trucks and 140 trailers.

95 trucks , 140 trailers, 23 years and 300 customers
