Caffrey International increases Mercedes-Benz fleet

Leading Meath-based freight transport and logistics firm Caffrey Internatonal has enhanced its fleet of Mercedes-Benz trucks with the recent acquisition of 14 new Actros tractor units.


Having taken delivery of their first Mercedes-Benz truck over forty years ago – a 1972-registered Mercedes-Benz 1418 – the latest order arrives factory painted in Caffrey’s eye-catching blue and cream livery, which has become a regular sight on Irish roads for generations.

Operating from the company’s Ashbourne base, the new vehicles will be put to work servicing routes across Ireland, the UK and further afield throughout Europe.
The new trucks – all Mercedes-Benz Actros 1845 4×2 tractor units – feature Predictive Powertrain Control, 2nd Generation OM471 engines, air-conditioning and night heaters.
Established in 1969 and employing over 100 staff, Caffrey International has grown into a medium sized enterprise with bases in Ashbourne and Gdynia, Poland. Serving more 500 customers across Europe, the company operates a modern fleet of over 120 trucks providing specialist logistics services including pharmaceuticals, air-freight, temperature controlled freight, FMCG and hazardous cargo (ADR).
