North Kildare Chamber has today (28/04/14) welcomed the launch of Eircode, the new national postcode system.

Speaking this afternoon, Chamber Chief Executive Allan Shine said “A future proofed postcode system is something which the Chamber Network has consistently called for over a number of years and we welcome the precise and efficient nature of the new system. Eircode will be of great benefit to business particularly given the high number of businesses now embracing online trade. The unique postcode system will help businesses to provide more cost effective services around the country with the possibility of misdelivered packages and mixed up addresses becoming a thing of the past.”

“The system will also have an important impact on the public in a number of ways. Emergency services locating their target address, tourists using SatNav and the planning and delivery of Government services will all benefit from the new unique location codes, Shine concluded.
