The Seabridge company was first established in the early 1980’s by its then parent company to promote its Ireland-UK freight activities. Seabridge’s mission then, as it is today, is to maximise the efficiency and cost effectiveness of the services provided to our clients. Another key factor of the Seabridge organisation is to maintain total control and visibility across the operational network in which we conduct our business.

In 1986 Seabridge opened its first Distribution Centre in Dublin followed a couple of years later by other centres in Cork and Haydock.

In the early 1990’s, Seabridge opened facilities at Belfast, Birmingham and at London (Heathrow). These operations were established to promote and develop the Seabridge scheduled overnight Express Services between the United Kingdom and Ireland. This Overnight service to and from the United Kingdom is still a core competence of the Seabridge organisation today.

Around the same time, Seabridge also expanded into the specialist warehousing sector providing added value storage related services. Over the course of the next decade, Seabridge focused on managed growth and development of over 1 million square feet of high quality warehousing throughout the UK and Ireland.

Specialist services was the next goal for Seabridge and by the mid 90’s, we had expanded our range of services to include the transportation of Bulk Liquids, Bulk Powers and Gases. Today Seabridge offers a wide range of specialist logistics solutions to the food, chemical, beverage and pharma industries.

In August 2001, our parent company was acquired by a leading European logistics company, and in July 2003, Seabridge was acquired through an MBO. Since then, we have continued our development in the United Kingdom and Ireland, focusing on our core competence of Overnight Express Freight Services between the United kingdom and Ireland, Express Full Load Services, Freight Forwarding, Airfreight, Bulk Transportation Services and specialist Warehousing.
