‘Business of the Year’ for Peel Ports

Thanks to a series of significant investments and a commitment to making a positive impact to the economy of the Liverpool City Region, Peel Ports Group scooped the top prize at the Mersey Maritime Awards.

The company beat off competition from Cammell Laird and Seatruck Ferries to take home the Business of the Year award, after demonstrating an impressive strategy for future growth, which will see it create more than 5,000 direct and indirect jobs with the development of the new Liverpool2 container terminal.

Peel Ports has invested significantly at the Port of Liverpool over the last 12 months, as part of a program to enhance its dry bulks, containers, metals facilities, as well as investing in new, efficient infrastructure for the benefit of customers.

Mark Whitworth, CEO at Peel Ports Group, said: “This award recognises the fact that we are a progressive business committed to the development of assets and infrastructure, sustainable business partnerships and customer focused logistics solutions, all with the purpose of aiding and accelerating the economy of the Liverpool City region.”

Investments include the completion of a GAFTA (Grain and Feed Trade Association) approved £8m Liverpool Animal Feed Warehouse to meet growing customer demand, as well as a £3m steel facility.

Peel Ports’ most significant investment is the construction of its new £300m deep water container terminal Liverpool2, which will more than double container capacity at the port. The new container terminal will enhance the Port of Liverpool’s container offer by removing current lock-gate restrictions and enable Liverpool2 to accommodate 95% of the world’s container vessels.

The development will reaffirm Liverpool as the UK’s leading transatlantic port, whilst enabling direct market connections with South and Central America, India, Far East, Mediterranean and the Baltics.
