L2 Spotlight: Mike Dwan

Thousands of man hours have gone into the development of Liverpool2, our latest investment at the Port of Liverpool. And with the official launch of this new leading-edge terminal planned for Friday 4 November, we wanted take a look at the team who have been patiently waiting in the wings to begin a new chapter in their career.

Mike Dwan, sales manager at Liverpool2 believes that the new world class terminal will transform UK logistics and bring a viable deep-sea option to the north of the country.

Here he explains more about his view on Liverpool2.

How long have you been with Peel Ports and what do you do?

I started in the company almost a year ago to look after cargo owners, logistics providers and the shipping lines. It’s my responsibility to promote a more sustainable, greener, cost-effective solution to the supply chain.

How did you end up working at Peel Ports?

I’ve been in the industry for over 10 years and in that time I have worked with a number of carriers. The opportunity to work with Peel Ports came up towards the end of last year. I knew that Peel Ports had big plans in the pipeline for the Port of Liverpool and I really wanted to be part of that. So when the right role came up, I went for it.

What role have you played in Liverpool2 and what will you be doing post launch?

My job really has been to generate awareness of the terminal to customers and potential customers as well as other key members of the industry. Liverpool2 is going to transform logistics in the UK right across the board, and it’s my job to make sure the industry knows that its options are about to improve tenfold.

How do you think Liverpool2 will benefit the shipping industry in the UK?

It’s going to revolutionise the UK’s logistics sector and bring viable alternatives for cargo owners in the North of the country. They will now be able to take their cargo closer to consumers without having to bring commodities inland. This removes some costs, reduces carbon and congestion from the supply chain.

What impact will Liverpool2 have on your role?

My job is to improve services for customers. And the fact that the new terminal will result in better global connectivity for my customers is great for me too. It’s a good position to be in from a sales point of view.

Can you sum up your thoughts about Liverpool2 in three simple words?

Bold, transformational and necessary.
