Peel Ports to deliver multi user warehouse in Liverpool
Peel Ports is to deliver a 240,000ft² ‘state of the art’ multi-user facility at Alexandra Docks within Peel Ports’ Port of Liverpool development located in Bootle.
It has appointed Glencar, to construct the £28 million facility which used for the handling and storage of cargo at the port.
It will be able to store a variety of commodities, both unitised and non-unitised requiring indoor storage. The facility will also have a dedicated quay and cranes to optimise vessel discharge as part of the new development.
David Huck, Chief Operating Officer at Peel Ports Group said: “We’ve seen a significant increase in demand for warehousing, and this huge new facility provides an opportunity for companies looking for a new base to grow their business, as well as allowing existing customers the chance to expand their operations at the port.
“This also represents a very important milestone for Peel Ports, enhancing both our warehousing and distribution offerings while enabling more sustainable, port-centric solutions which reduce road miles.
“We’ve long argued the benefits of the Port of Liverpool’s central location, and this new facility will also provide real cost and supply chain benefits. The new state-of-the-art, dynamic storage facility has been maximised for storage volumes, discharge performance and low lorry delivery times.”
