John Pake O'Toole
O’Toole Transport’s status as Ireland’s premier food logistics company can be traced back to the 1940’s. 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 56.
A Family-Owned Company
In 1996, the O’Toole family came together and set up O’Toole Transport Ltd as a family run business. With only a handful of prospective customers and 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.
The first vehicle, a Scania 93M230, was pivotal in helping O’Toole Transport become a reliable carrier. In early 2000, O’Toole Transport became heavily involved in transport for the food industry, developing a network of industry contacts even further and expanding the fleet to its current size of over 95 trucks and 165 trailers.
Now, 23 years and 300 customers later, building on a track record of innovation and vision, O’Toole Transport is fuelled by the pioneering spirit that inspired its founders to continually transform the Irish transport industry.
