When a business has its eyes on Ireland, there is plenty of help from delivery companies

By: Phillip Adams-Wright

Any business which sets its sights on doing business in Ireland will be treading a well-worn path. This is a good thing for companies which are trying to break into the Irish market, as it means that there are lots of services available, from many different, and well-known, international delivery specialists, which have helped firms make that precious breakthrough.

Companies which have for years been renowned for offering a trustworthy and time-sensitive service over a variety of long-distance routes are among those which are now lining up to battle for business on much shorter journeys, including the one across the Irish Sea. Ireland has been a free state, independent of the rest of the United Kingdom, since 1922, when it was initially known as the Irish Free State, and its status was formally recognised by the rest of the UK in 1949.

Having long been one of the poorest countries in western Europe, Ireland enjoyed a halcyon period from 1995 to 2007, which saw continual growth, and a rush by many global companies to invest in the country, prompted by the promise of lower operating costs, and the availability of an adaptable and skilled workforce.
The country’s 4.5million residents enjoy high levels of economic and political freedom, and Ireland is a prominent player on the world stage, being a member of the United Nations, World Trade Organisation, and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

As a full and active member of the European Union, there are few customs and regulatory barriers preventing businesses from the UK from supplying their goods to an appreciative Irish audience, and a strong common cultural thread also means that businesses on either side of the Irish Sea can relate to each other very well.

While the capital, Dublin, is the first place most businesses will think of when they set out a strategy for supplying goods to Ireland, they would be unwise to overlook the potential of the Republic’s other major conurbations, such as Cork, Limerick and Waterford, especially as there are fast and reliable road networks linking all these important cities.

The island is served by three major airports, and is known for being the home of Ryanair, one of Europe’s biggest low-cost airlines. Dublin receives cargo flights from most of the UK’s major airports, while international couriers also serve Shannon and Cork airports from originating airports which receive traffic from all around the world.
