IRU Accreditation - Safe Loading and Cargo Securing

We have now obtained IRU accreditation status in Safe Loading and Cargo Securing as per guidelines for the international safe load securing for road transport. 

The HSA and the IRU have worked in conjunction with each other to draw up these guidelines for the safe movement and securing of loads for road transport throughout Europe. 

We are the first transport company to achieve this status in Ireland and the UK 

Well done to everyone involved for their hard work and effort in securing this accreditation.

Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA)

Changes taking place from January 2015 in relation to the European Union directive on Fuel Emission that all ferry operators operating in the Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA).
The SECA zone includes English Channel and North Sea that we must travel though when moving your cargo going to/from Mainland Europe.

The current maximum allowed Sulphur content in marine fuels is 1.0% and this will reduce to 0.1% within the Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA).
Effectively this means that traditional heavy fuel oil used in freight ferries will be replaced with more refined fuel oil which is more expensive to purchase.

All the various ferry operators within this area have slightly different but similar systems for calculating the SECA surcharges.

We together have absolutely no control over this forced European taxation, The cost implications are unavoidable with a significant impact on current operating cost that we have to pass onto the customer.

Details that we have received from various ferry suppliers.

Under the new legislation, Irish Sea routes between Ireland – UK will not be included in the SECA area until January 2020, this means that the transport costs between Ireland and United Kingdom will not be effected by new low Sulphur rules at this stage.

Naturally, We are extremely conscious of the difficulties which arise from any increase in transport charges to our customers.

We thank you for your understanding on this matter and please do not hesitate to contact us, should you require further clarification.
