Leading Logistics

Westminster Event

We were delighted to have the opportunity to host a Parliamentary Reception at the Houses of Parliament, Westminster that was kindly hosted by Bill Esterson, MP for Sefton Central.

Over 100 guests from the political, shipping and business communities attended the evening event, which focused on transatlantic opportunities and the importance of strengthening trade links between the UK and the Americas. Transport Minister, John Hayes MP, Lord Prescott and Jake Berry MP, Minister for the Northern Powerhouse were present, alongside leading UK businesses such as B&M Retail and Morning Foods.


The event highlighted the importance of Peel Ports’ significant investment of £750 million and our location at the heart of the UK as a prime gateway for worldwide trade opportunities.

Take a look back at the highlights from the event.
