Abstract

Exporting is worth approximately £10,00 per head of population and over half of the jobs in the Irish economy are directly or indirectly involved in exporting. As Ireland is peripherally located on the edge of Europe, it is faced with strong competition from larger producers, located nearer the target market's. The transportation of exports is the lifeline of these positive economic trends. No country can exist independantly without either importing or exporting goods, this is supported by the theories of international trade. The vital link that allows exporting to be possible is the physical transportation of the goods to their foreign market. The objective of this study is to examine the the factors facing an exporter when choosing a mode of transport and the adequacy of the transport
infrastructure and services available to them.
