Delivering Excellence is a promise that’s baked into the DNA at Baku. Since 2000, we’ve been exceeding our customers’ expectations, optimising our solutions, improving performance and providing a first class reliable service. It’s how we’ve grown our business to a 1,700-strong client list.
Formed by Mary Barry and Uwe Kuhn (Ba & Ku) in 2000, Baku GLS started life in a small office in Killinick, Co Wexford. From day one, we committed ourselves to providing a flexible, dedicated, personal service built around our client’s success.
Our proactive solution-driven approach and outstanding customer service standards have underpinned our growth in the intervening years. We’ve built the business organically, from a small team with a handful of clients to a 75-person operation spanning more than 27 countries and serving more than 1,700 global customers.
We’re transport experts who love what we do. This is our life’s work and we’re proud of our hard-won reputation.
Our highly trained and certified front-line drivers and warehouse operatives are backed up by an exceptional team of transport experts at Baku HQ. With 24/7 connectivity between drivers and planners, we’re a fully connected team, fully equipped to achieve our client’s objectives. Learn more about the Baku team
Baku’s senior management team have worked together, on and off, for the best part of 30 years in a variety of different businesses. Their respective reputations for reliability and accountability, and the systems they’ve built together at Baku GLS, have helped to create a transport solution that can truly fit every client’s individual requirements.
We deliver for some of the largest businesses in Europe across industry sectors like Pharma, Food, Retail, Engineering, Chemicals and Life Sciences to name a few. We’re also the trusted partner of a number of global freight forwarders. Outside of our blue-chip client list, we also support hundreds of small and medium-sized enterprises. In fact, the only clients we don’t serve are individuals moving house (…but if that’s what you need, let us know — we’ll put you in touch with someone).
We can offer a first class transport service anywhere in the world thanks to our strategic partnerships with trusted international businesses. At corporate level, we work closely with bonded warehouses, engineering firms and customs brokers to maintain our high standards across the logistics network. Our reputation in the transport industry and our long-standing relationships with trusted suppliers mean that — if we need to change a tyre in Turkey or store a trailer in Stuttgart — we have the contacts to get it done and keep our cargo moving.
Our fleet is provisioned to offer exceptional levels of reliability, speed and security. Our trucks are modern, well-maintained and equipped with the latest technology. Our talented drivers are highly trained and certified in everything from ADR compliance to sustainability. With more than 1.5 million kilos of payload capacity at our disposal, our fleet is capable of supporting thousands of transport contracts at any given moment. Learn more about our fleet
