Liverpool2 is the new deepwater container terminal at the Port of Liverpool. Costing in excess of £300m to build, it is the key project in a much wider scheme being developed by Peel Ports that will transform the way logistics work in the British Isles.
At present, 90% of deep sea cargo enters the UK via the South, despite 50% of the UK container market actually being closer to Liverpool. With an increasing onus on reducing carbon emissions, as well as cutting the costs of global supply chains, it’s clear that the current UK model simply isn’t sustainable.
The construction of Liverpool2 will significantly increase the size of container vessel the Port of Liverpool can handle, transforming global supply routes and once again allowing direct services from around the world to call at the Port of Liverpool. The new terminal will more than double the container handling capacity of the port.
