Why are thousands of parcels returned by An Post to the UK each day?

Inside Business Podcast: An Post chief executive David McRedmond talks to Ciaran Hancock

Listen | 42:52

An Post chief executive Dave McRedmond joins Ciaran Hancock on the latest episode of the Inside Business podcast to discuss the ongoing row between An Post and the UK’s Post Office over the implementation of post-Brexit customs rules, which is resulting in thousands of online purchases being returned to British retailers.

“The problem we have is that in the UK, the UK post office will not put the systems in place to meet the EU Customs requirements,” he says.

Later on, we hear from two Dublin city centre business owners, Stephen Kennedy of Copper+Straw café and Sean Crescenzi of Happy Endings restaurant.

They speak about the impact that anti-social behaviour and drug dealing, in and around Aston Quay, is having on their businesses and the immediate and long-term solutions they would like to see implemented.
