“Every business, whether an exporter or service provider, an SME or corporate, will have a supply chain. The aim of this initiative is to provide a platform for companies to connect, learn how to manage and protect their business from risks around currency fluctuations, cashflow and working capital management, getting product from the point of origin to the customer, maximising sustainability and ensuring compliance. The IEA is delighted to be working with sponsors Rhenus Logistics, Ulster Bank, Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail, and media partner Fleet Transport again.

This is the second year we are collaborating to offer our members and stakeholders up-to-date, informative and specific information through our relationships with Government and State Agencies. Connecting members locally and providing a platform for discussing local issues will also be strongly focused on and feed into IEA policy, training courses, consultancy and member representation.” - Simon McKeever, Chief Executive, Irish Exporters Association

This event will focus on import and export challenges for manufacturers and service providers in the Munster region; offer solutions and practical support from logistics, trade finance experts and exporting companies; provide information around third country shipping and associated documentation as well as maximising opportunities with our air, road, sea and rail services.
