Following Peel Ports investment in the new deep-sea terminal in Liverpool. The group are looking to increase their market share of Transatlantic business. 

I completely agree with the bullish attitude on this. Liverpool has historically been one of, if not the most, iconic port location in the UK and is ideally located to service such a demand. 

With regards to incoming and external traffic, Liverpool is well placed not only to receive from the Atlantic but to also distribute across the UK and can also act as a corridor to service Northern Europe via the northern powerhouse transport links and ports on the East coast of the UK.

One thing is for sure, the Port market in the UK is competitive. Whilst Liverpool has invested, there is also development on-going in the South East. Although being less than ideal for the Atlantic trade, the draw to supply the London market is very attractive.
