Today marks a significant steps forward for the regions shipping and logistics capability.

Peel Ports today formally opened the new Liverpool2 deep water dock. Which will enable the Merseyside Port to compete on a global scale and welcome the world’s biggest ships for the first time. 

Before the new terminal opened the Port of Liverpool could only handle 5% of the world’s container ships. The new terminal means it can handle 95% of them, including new ships designed to go through the widened Panama Canal.
