Liverpool2 was a £400 million investment to create a new deep-water container terminal at the Port of Liverpool, enabling the largest vessels to call directly in the heart of the UK. The facility does not only have the capacity to accept the largest generation of container ships but is one of the most modern and efficient terminals in the world, future-proofing the port for decades to come.

The terminal features land reclaimed from the River Mersey, a new quay wall, the biggest ship-to-shore cranes of their type in the world, and the latest technology. The extra capacity and improved connectivity is critical in re-establishing the Port of Liverpool as the UK’s port of choice for shipping lines and cargo owners.

Significantly, Liverpool2 offers exporters based in the North a more competitive route to international markets. Peel Ports is leading the way in helping businesses to reduce costs, congestion and carbon emissions in their supply chains.
