How DfE used mobile network data to assess the impact of Brexit on trade between Northern Ireland and Great Britain
Northern Ireland's Department for the Economy (DfE) needed to understand the movement of heavy goods vehicles better to shape new trading policies and procedures coming into force after Brexit.
Citi Logik devised a study that provided a representative view of trade passing through borders between Great Britain to Northern Ireland and via the Republic of Ireland. By helping to quantify the level of HGV traffic, the study has given policymakers valuable insights into the potential impact of their policies on people and businesses.
