One Team

People are our greatest asset. They keep the UK’s supply chain moving every day and without them, we can’t succeed.

The vital role of our team

Ports play a pivotal role in the global supply chain, serving as gateways for goods to move efficiently across borders. They are  bustling hubs of economic activity that impact our daily lives in ways we often overlook. 

From the food we consume to the products we use, ports are the linchpins that connect producers with consumers. They enable the seamless transportation of raw materials, finished goods, and everything in between. Peel Ports' people understand the significance of their role; they are the people  who ensure that the items we depend upon are accessible and reach us on time.

Whether it's the maritime professionals managing ship traffic, the cargo handlers unloading and loading goods, or the logistics experts orchestrating the movement of products, each person's contribution is integral. Their collective efforts make certain that groceries line store shelves, medical supplies reach hospitals, and manufacturing components reach factories, maintaining the rhythm of our daily lives.

Diversity & Inclusion

Peel Ports Group is more than just a place to work. Due to the diversity of what we do, working here provides a truly matchless working environment where bright futures and lasting careers are built.

Thousands of skilled people from different backgrounds make up the Peel Ports team across our sites in the UK and Ireland. Whatever the strength of our people individually, we know we’ll always accomplish more together.

We champion and promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace. By recognising the unique contributions our people make, we are able to grow and harvest the future of the maritime and logistics industry. A significant aspect of our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy is our focus on empowering women.

Across our diverse ports, terminals,  women are occupying pioneering positions that are reshaping the landscape of the maritime and logistics sector. We understand that a diverse workforce enhances creativity and ignites innovative thinking.

Peel Ports is actively involved with the Department of Transport and Maritime UK on the ‘Women in Maritime Charter’ and signed the ‘Women in Maritime Pledge’ in 2018. We have continued to encourage more women to pursue careers in Maritime and this also includes enhanced maternity provision for our employees.
