#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.
