‘AWAY DAY’ TO LIVERPOOL

Away Day to Liverpool 

 

Meet Peel Ports to hear about their plans for the operation and development of the Port of Liverpool and the Liverpool 2 Container Terminal. Hear about the place of the port in the creation of a Superport in Liverpool City Region.   

The visit includes a tour of the port by coach. Built on its history as a great maritime trading centre; Liverpool City Region’s ports, airport, road, rail and logistics assets, together comprise an established and important driver of economic value. Meet Peel Ports to hear about their plans for the operation and development of the Port of Liverpool and the Liverpool 2 Container Terminal. Hear about the place of the port in the creation of a Superport in Liverpool City Region. 

 

New, lucrative markets are emerging: Brazil, Russia, India and China. Technological advances such as widening the Panama Canal to accommodate the world’s largest vessels are opening up new trade routes.  Businesses are placing increasing emphasis on moving people and freight both at the lowest possible cost and at the lowest possible carbon output.  Retailers and manufacturers are increasingly seeking port area locations close to large centres of population to base value-adding activities and distribution, reducing freight costs and duplication in the handling of goods and reducing the time goods take to reach the customer.  

Liverpool City Region, with its central position in the UK, and situated in the largest economic region in the UK outside of London, is an ideal location to take advantage of these trends, offering a cost-efficient, low carbon SuperPort delivering compelling, competitive advantages for business.  The opportunities for SuperPort are global in scale and have the potential to transform the Liverpool City Region economy.  The SuperPort Action Plan contains over £1.8bn of new infrastructure developments that will build upon existing assets to stimulate economic growth and job creation and raise the profile of the City Region as a gateway of international stature. These projects include the development of a deep-water Post Panamax in-river terminal at the Port of Liverpool and the expansion of 3MG, the Multimodal Gateway operated as a partnership between Stobart Group, Prologis and Halton Borough Council.

Recent analysis forecasts the potential for over 21,000 new jobs and an additional £6.1bn of GVA to be created through SuperPort by 2020 and nearly 30,000 new jobs and an additional £18.3bn of GVA by 2030.
