The Irish Exporters Association (IEA) has welcomed the announcement that from January 2021 Rosslare Europort will accommodate an additional sailing to Cherbourg, operated by Stena Line. The additional freight-only vessel, that will commence sailing from 4th January 2021, is a welcomed development, with which Irish exporters will factor into their Brexit proofing plans.
Commenting on the good news Irish Exporters Association Chief Executive, Simon McKeever said: “Alternatives to the landbridge are a key consideration for exporters and importers. I am urging IEA members to analyse their supply chain operations and look for ways to limit the shock of Brexit, which is looming large at the moment. Yesterday’s announcement by Rosslare Europort reaffirms the port’s commitment to Irish exporters and importers alike. Ensuring the swift, timely and direct transit of goods to and from the continent is a paramount consideration and announcements such as this gives traders more options to bring their goods to the single market.”
