Peel Ports launches multi-modal site at Ellesmere Port

Peel Ports is looking for potential occupiers for its Port Cheshire multi-modal development site on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal.

The site of the former Bridgewater Paper Mill in Ellesmere Port could be developed as a single unit of up to 1,000,000 sq ft or a number of small developments from 100,000 sq ft.

An existing operating berth on the Ship Canal connects the site directly to the Port of Liverpool via Peel Ports’ container shuttle service and the rail network is easily accessed with an on-site branch line.

Peel Ports has appointed AEW as specialist logistics architects and Jones Lang LaSalle and B8 Real Estate as the marketing team for the 75 acre site.

Andrew Martin, Group Land and Property Director at Peel Ports, said: “Port Cheshire offers customers unrivalled flexibility, through existing rail and water links, enhanced by direct access to the region’s motorway network. It provides the perfect platform for port centric development linked to the new Liverpool2 terminal and the Manchester Ship Canal.
