Peel Ports invests £5.5m in haulier service at Port of Liverpool

Peel Ports is investing £5.5 million at the Port of Liverpool Container Terminal to provide hauliers with a more streamlined service.

The investment includes an automated gate system that will ensure faster turnaround times for vehicles and minimise administration for drivers and operators.

AutoGate will be supplied by global logistics firm Kalmar Global and APS Technology and is expected to deliver benefits and cost-savings to customers using the Port of Liverpool as their UK gateway.

The investment complements the £300 million already committed to the construction of Liverpool2, Peel Ports’ deep-water container terminal being built alongside the existing container terminal and scheduled to open in 2015.
