The Irish road haulage industry has warned that disruptions and obstructions from new customs and imports controls at Irish Sea ports post-Brexit will have “catastrophic consequences”.
Irish Road Haulage Association president Eugene Drennan said the next four weeks will be “a period of unprecedented disruption for the movement of goods”.
The disruption new border checks at ports will cause to the transport industry will be “immense” and have “the capacity to bring the licensed haulage industry to a standstill”, he said
