  • ITS Ireland allows people from the full supply chain to meet on an informal basis to discuss all things related to ITS. Being a peripheral nation,we rely on a lot of overseas manufactured solutions so makes it an obvious focal point for suppliers of solutions. We also raise the awareness and technical knowledge of everyone via events and we facilitate overseas visits to learn experiences of others etc. There was no such forum before ITS Ireland was formed.
