Paris in Liverpool

The Port of Liverpool handled its largest ever containership at its new deepwater terminal on 6 March. Liverpool2 played host to MSC’s 6,552teu HS Paris, which is the first post-Panamax vessel to call since opening of phase 1 opening of the new terminal last November.

Chief executive of Peel Ports Group, Mark Whitworth, said: “This is a huge milestone for Peel Ports and the Port of Liverpool. While we have the capacity to handle vessels up to 20,000 TEU, smaller post-Panamax ships are still very much part of our overall strategy and it’s essential that can accommodate those too.”
