Iarnród Éireann Freight
There are many environmental and social benefits to be gained from utilising rail to transport goods. Rail produces 76% less CO2 than road per tonne carried and uses less than half the fuel as road per tonne km. Therefore rail can play a valuable role in our efforts to cut carbon emissions.

The business units are responsible for all their own activities and are supported by centrally managed support functions. The different units are:
