Road

As this is a domestic part of the economy, the quality of our road infrastructure also affects industries outside of Logistics including sectors such as Retail and Construction. Therefore, movement of goods around the island is vital for development of the economy in multiple areas.

Sea

The Ferry services to the Island are the main way that freight is transported from the UK mainland and vice versa. Whilst we are centric to the UK, we also have services to and from Ireland.
