 “The Implications of Brexit on the Use of the UK Landbridge” 

Concerns have been raised about the likely impacts of Brexit on landbridge traffic and the flexibility that exists within the maritime industry to deal with significant modal shifts. The IMDO has undertaken research to address these concerns.

 “Port Capacity Study”  

A consultancy team lead by Arup and EY Dkm have been appointed to assess the capacity of Ireland’s ports network.

 “IPORES 2017 – an update on Irish Ports Offshore Renewable Energy Services”
