Displaying items by tag: Brexit Benefit

As BBC News reports, the Irish port of Rosslare (Europort) hopes Brexit will be good for it as increasing numbers of hauliers seek to avoid the UK land bridge as the UK prepares to leave the EU. 

That is because of fears about (ferry-related) traffic delays at Holyhead in Wales and Dover in Kent.

Two hours before dawn it is dark at Rosslare port in County Wexford, as a roll-on roll-off (ro-ro) ferry arrives from Wales to dock.

First light brings more ships; some from Wales, others from France and twice weekly from Bilbao in Spain.

The port is busy as the trucks leave with their cargoes for destinations all over Ireland.

But the hope is that because of Brexit and increased paper work it will get even busier.
