Demanding urgent government support

Irish hauliers claim fuel costs are too much

Irish hauliers are demanding government compensation for the rising cost of fuel, climate upgrades, and Brexit. They also want new workers’ rights to be deferred to save them money. The Irish Road Haulage Association (IRHA) has also called for biofuel grants for farmers that agree to cull dairy and beef herds. Fuel costs have doubled for some hauliers since the pandemic.

The news comes as haulage firms predict knock-on effects here from a dockworkers’ strike in Felixstowe in England and also possible industrial action in Liverpool, which acts as a feeder port for Ireland’s US imports.
