Peel Ports’ £300m Liverpool2 deep-water port terminal is set to go fully operational this year and will be able to handle 95% of the world’s biggest cargo vessels.

As well as creating 500 new jobs directly at the Port of Liverpool, the terminal also has the potential to revolutionise the logistics sector in the UK.

Millions of tonnes of cargo that currently arrives via Southern English ports and is brought up to the North of England by road, can instead be unloaded at Liverpool2.

This could see the creation of many more jobs across the Liverpool city region over the next few years.

During mid to late summer Peel Ports enlisted the help of the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) for berthing and marine trails at Liverpool2.

MSC made a number of its cargo vessels available for the trials throughout July and August.
