Irish freight figures show increased short-sea shipping

Tags: ,


Freight flows between the Republic of Ireland (ROI) and Great Britain are about 50% of normal levels a month after the UK’s exit from the EU.

There has been a 100% year-on-year increase in the amount of freight trade moving directly between Ireland and continental Europe.

Although freight volumes on ROI-GB routes were about 50% of those last year, traffic is gradually increasing. There is an approximate 11% week-on-week rise in freight vehicle movements into Ireland from GB.

There were just 61 inbound freight movements on 1-2 January, increasing to a peak of 1,334 on 28-29 January.

Approximately 80% of trucks coming through Irish ports are ‘green-routed’ – they can leave the port immediately after arriving.
