IMDO Launch Report: “The Implications of Brexit on the Use of the Landbridge”

13th November 2018

#Ports&Shipping - The Irish Maritime Development Office (IMDO) the State agency responsible for the development, promotion and marketing of the shipping and services sector, have produced a report, "Implications of Brexit on the Use of the Landbridge".

Published online yesterday by the IMDO, the report uses quantitative and qualitative methods to determine the volume of Irish imports and exports that use the UK landbridge on an annual basis.  In addition the report proposes seven Government recommendations to mitigate against any negative impacts of Brexit on Irish economic sectors and transport routes.

The report was carried out under terms of reference set by the Department of Transport,Tourism and Sport. The study quantifies the volume of Irish import and export traffic that uses Landbridge. It also establishes the drivers of the choice to use the landbridge

Assisting the report study were the Irish Exporters Association (IEA), the Irish Road Haulage Association (IRHA), the Freight Transport Association of Ireland (FTA Ireland), Dr.Stephen Hynes, economics lecturer at NUI Galway, and director of the Socio-Economic Marine Research Unit (SEMRU), Dr. Andreas Tsakiridis, research associate in marine economics at SEMRU.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
