Biggest container volume ever for Liverpool2

[ April 2, 2020   //   ]

Peel Ports’ Liverpool2 deep-water container terminal has handled its largest ever cargo volume in a single vessel call since it opened in 2016, after the MSC Federica exchanged 5,452teu.

The vessel is part of MSC’s Turkey Canada service and includes calls at Montreal, Liverpool, Sines, Valencia, Barcelona and Tekirdağ amongst other terminals. It also directly links Liverpool to the Far East.

Peel Ports, is continuing to develop the deep-water terminal in conjunction with global terminal business Terminal Investment Limited Sarl.

It has recently taken delivery of a further three ship to shore cranes which are being commissioned and will soon see a further 10 rail-mounted gantry cranes which will increase the capacity of the terminal significantly, making it capable of managing the unloading of two 380m vessels simultaneously.

Work on this second phase of the project is expected to be completed during 2021.
