Who we are

We are Transport Matters, Freight Forwarders. We are a small group of owner-managers with almost 45 years of shipping and forwarding experience. We are 100% Irish owned and are based in Booterstown, Dublin. We were established in 2008, initially as a freight consultancy company and whilst we still offer consultancy services, our core business is handling our client’s shipments from start to finish. We ship containers [lots of them], groupage, airfreight and road freight. We enjoy handling exports just as much as imports and for some clients, we handle both their exports and imports.

Day to day operations and quotations are handled by Greg Fields and Derek Ryan. Between them, Greg and Derek have worked for almost 45 years in shipping and by this stage they have probably shipped [almost] every possible commodity to every possible destination in the world.

Our clients keep us busy. Our goal is to keep them happy.

Karen Twomey is our office manager and as well as looking after almost everything else, she is primarily responsible for all accounting matters such as making sure we pay all our suppliers on time and also that our clients pay us on time.

Most of our clients are repeat clients and they trust us to handle their shipments every day, week or month.

Our biggest priority is to consistently meet or exceed our clients’ expectations. We work on the basis that every future booking is dependent on our clients’ experience of the last. We see our relationship with each client as a journey rather than a destination.

Our company philosophy is very simple. Our clients keep us busy; our goal is to keep them happy.

We are always very pleased to hear from prospective new clients. Please feel free to contact us to discuss any aspect of your shipping requirements.
