Myself and the members of the Management Team really appreciate the enormous effort and work ethic of the hauliers and all their drivers and what they are doing on behalf of Ireland. I wish you all good health and look forward to meeting at the earliest allowed opportunity to assess the overall situation for transport and plan a way forward for our industry and our organisation. Ireland will be different post-COVID-19.”
