Logistics specialist Maritime Transport is to more than double the size of its transport depot at the Port of Liverpool in a multi-million pound expansion.
A leading UK logistics specialist is to more than double the size of its depot at the Port of Liverpool in a multi-million pound investment.
Maritime Transport, which operates across the UK, will see the size of its transport depot at Seaforth increase from four acres to 10. It will create a new storage yard for loaded containers, significantly enhancing its operation in the North West.
Construction will start in April and will include a new transport depot, with new offices as well as driver facilities. The new storage yard accompanying the enlarged premises will offer a wide range of loaded container handling and storage capacity.
It will enable optimum storage for up to 2,000 TEU (shipping containers). New Sany reach stackers, which have been ordered in the last few weeks, will be arriving on site in time for the project completion in November 2022.
Transport, said: “This significant investment, which marks the beginning of a strategic collaboration with Peel Ports, heralds an exciting time for the company in terms of our growth, while we continue to provide the very best facilities and excellent working environments for our colleagues.
“The Port of Liverpool has established itself as a key gateway for our customers over the years, and we are excited to be bringing high quality storage space and even greater capability and choice to the market as we see an increase in demand for our services.
David Huck, chief operating officer at Peel Ports Group, owner of the Port of Liverpool, added:
“This is a major commitment which is yet another highlight in the exciting evolution at the Port of Liverpool.
“It links perfectly with our strategy to extend our multi-modal connections providing better links beyond our current hinterland. We’re also pleased to see one of our important customers continuing to enjoy success and together we are going from strength-to-strength.”
