Cronus Logistics welcomes Chancellor to Warrenpoint

[ June 7, 2016   //   ]

Cronus Logistics managing director Nicola Walker met Chancellor George Osborne during a visit to Warrenpoint Port in County Down on 6 June. He was shown round the docks and observed ro/ro and containerised operations along with the discharge of bulk grain ships. He was also shown timber that is imported through Warrenpoint but ultimately is transported across the land frontiers into the south of Ireland.

Speaking to the media during his tour he said he said that Warrenpoint was “a very practical demonstration of the fact that Northern Ireland has the only land border with an EU country… If we quit the EU, this is going to be the border with the EU.”

He later crossed the border on a lorry delivering timber into Dublin.
