First for ‘green highway’ barge service

The first project cargo has been transported on Peel Ports’ barge service on the Manchester Ship Canal.

Until now the Liverpool to Manchester service has carried only an increasing level of containers, but transporting of a chemicals tank to the Ineos facility at Runcorn saw the start of non-containerised traffic.

The 30 metre high, 20 tonne tank  to just over three hours to make the journey from Liverpool to Runcorn.
