Here in Liverpool, we continue to develop our rail infrastructure in order to assist customers and shipping lines alike in overcoming the present driver shortage. Liverpool now boasts regular services to Mossend, East Midlands Gateway, Lawley Street and will also soon add a further connection to Hams Hall increasing Liverpool connectivity by rail to critical points in the hinterland.

I am thrilled to be back out meeting old and new customers at Multimodal this year, sharing case studies and discussing ways to thinking and doing different.

Come and meet Simon on the Peel Ports Group stand 9024 at Multimodal, NEC Birmingham from 19 – 21 October.
