Brexit: Export issues ‘easing at Irish ports’

Tags: , ,


Irish officials say that Post-Brexit difficulties in moving British exports through Irish ports have eased.

Civil servants from customs, agriculture and public health were giving evidence to the Seanad Special Select Committee.

Freight haulage companies had complained that the new Irish customs IT system was slow and unreliable. The director general of customs said that after suffering ‘performance degradation’ the new system had been performing well since mid-March.

The value of British exports to Ireland in January and February fell by around £1.5bn compared to the same period last year, but some of the decline was down to stockpiling and the impact of Covid-19.
