The Knights of Old Group has launched a new service into Ireland

The Knights of Old Group has teamed up with VOREX to start the new service into what they describe as Europe's fastest growing economy.

A spokesman for The Knights of Old Group said: "In post-Brexit Britain, whilst trade deals with the UK are still being brokered around the globe, the launch of the dedicated Ireland Service is a move to support trade between the UK and Ireland its fifth biggest trading partner, and beyond into Europe.

"With Ireland recording a hugely impressive €75 billion rise in exports in 2015, from €220 billion to €295 billion, now is the perfect time to launch a service dedicated to serving and helping grow this important economy within Europe," he added.
