Waterford firm contributes to Freight and Logistic Network's environmental sustainability
Store-All Transport and Warehousing, the Waterford member for The Pallet Network (TPN), has contributed to TPN being highly commended in the environmental sustainability category at this year's annual Small Firms Association (SFA) Awards. A certificate of Commendation was presented to TPN by Richard Bruton T.D., Minister of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation. The Pallet Network (TPN) is one of Ireland's leading freight, transport and logistics services providers. Store-All, based in Waterford, is one of the 23 regional national network carriers for TPN.
Store-All, founded by Liam Dalton and Eamonn McKenna in 1993, provides storage, retrieval, distribution and management services for all types of commodities with special emphasis on the food and pharmaceutical sectors. Store-All operates 540,000 square foot of high-grade warehousing at three separate locations in Waterford and employs 45 full time staff. Liam Dalton, Principal, Store-All, said, "Despite the continuing economic downturn, we have focused on becoming as lean as possible, cutting costs while maintaining services. Being part of TPN, a multi-million euro network, enabled the company to grow because of the support and encouragement from the other network members. This year we are going to focus on staying lean and providing the best overnight service and the best customer service. These are the initiatives that helped us thrive in 2011. We are looking ahead to a successful 2012 and hoping to be shortlisted again next year in the SFA awards."
The aim of the SFA National Small Business Awards is to celebrate the achievements of small businesses (with up to 50 employees) in Ireland, and to recognise the vital contribution of the small business sector to the Irish economy and to showcase Ireland's entrepreneurial talent like TPN and its members.
Seamus McGowan, Managing Director, TPN said, "TPN and its 23 members are delighted to have been highly commended in the SFA's Environmental Sustainability category. As concern for the environment rises, TPN has taken into account the external costs of logistics associated with climate change, air pollution, noise, vibration and accidents and has put in place a number of systems and new, greener, more fuel efficient equipment to help combat these growing concerns. Our continuing success is down to the 23 committed members that we have around the country. The efforts of members like Store-All have meant that we are meeting the needs of both small and large enterprises and keeping our services levels as high as ever. We hope to continue this success throughout 2012."

Once in a blue moon. As rare as hen's teeth. A Government success. Each of those three sentences are as unusual and as rare as each other. But the last one seems to be about to take place. The Government has announced that it plans to give each child in the State a second year of free pre-school. It might not sound like earth shattering news but if it does happen then it could be one of the most significant things that this Government has done since it took office. Any money that is given over to education is a …
