DRIVE FOR TRAFFIC
ASPECIAL commercial department is to be set up by Coras Iompair Eireann to gain more .passenger and freight traffic. It is part of an internal reorganization scheme which C.I.E. intend to introduce over the next two years.
Outmoded freight rates, which previously hampered C.I.E. in their efforts to negotiate transport agreements with traders, were abolished by the Transport Act, 1958. The new trading flexibility has already enabled the company to conclude a steadily increasing number of package deals."
