Maritime Transport Ltd has signed an agreement with Peel Ports Group to expand its existing transport depot at the Port of Liverpool.
The multi-million-pound project will see the facility increase from four acres to ten with a new storage yard for loaded containers.
The announcement comes just after the completion of Maritime’s latest addition to its growing network of sites, an 8.1-acre, state-of-the-art transport depot located on Normanton Industrial Estate in Wakefield less than a mile away from the Maritime Intermodal Rail Terminal.
Construction will commence in April 2022 and will include a new transport depot, with new offices as well as the usual Maritime standard of exceptional driver facilities.
John Williams, Group Executive Chairman, Maritime Transport, said:
‘This significant investment, which marks the beginning of a strategic collaboration with Peel Ports, heralds an exciting time for the company in terms of our growth, whilst we continue to provide the very best facilities and excellent working environments for our colleagues.’
David Huck, Chief Operating Officer, Peel Ports Group, said:
‘This is a major commitment which is yet another highlight in the exciting evolution at the Port of Liverpool. It links perfectly with our strategy to extend our multi-modal connections providing better links beyond our current hinterland.’
