Polar Ice Drivers and Fleet
Polar Ice In-house Distribution
Polar Ice operates its own transport fleet of HGV and LGV vehicles for bulk dry ice deliveries. This gives us full control over time-sensitive deliveries which can be of a critical nature, for Ireland’s food, medical and pharmaceutical sectors. Our just-in-time delivery service guarantees excellent service levels for our customers and gives us the flexibility to act promptly on emergency requirements.
We are accredited to the FTA TruckSafe Gold Standard, along with ISO9001 and BRC. All of these standards are globally recognised and it gives us great pride as an SME to be able to operate to these levels. We strive for excellence across all areas of the business, and by treating our fleet as a critical asset rather than a cost to be managed, we provide exceptional service to our customers.
Polar Ice Drivers
Our drivers undertake annual periodic training, upskilling opportunities, and refresher courses in-house with a quality consultant for the BRC requirements.
We recognise that driving as a career is costly to the individual, so Polar Ice made the decision to financially support our employees continuous professional development with training courses (CPC, truck driving lessons, eco driving behaviour, defensive driving, forklifts, logistics, etc.).

FTA TruckSafe Gold Standard
The Freight Transport Association of Ireland (FTAI) has launched an annual audit programme – TruckSafe – which is designed to provide independent verification that HGV fleet operators are meeting, and exceeding, minimum legal requirements. Attainable in three levels – bronze, silver and gold – the TruckSafe standards will be assessed annually, and are marked on a rising scale of complexity designed to reassure operators and buyers of freight alike.
