CWT Commodities, the UK’s largest importer of cocoa and coffee beans, is to develop a warehouse at the Port of Liverpool.
The company is leasing the land from Peel Ports and has engaged Mazdon Construction to build the 36,000 sq ft warehouse and new offices. The new site is in addition to the eight warehouses it has already built at the Port.
“The Port of Liverpool is strategically important to us due to its geographical location resulting in reduced inland transport costs and carbon footprint for the supply chain involved in delivering to the factories,” said Jason Cross, director of CWT Commodities UK. “The continued investment we have made in logistical infrastructure such as the warehouses wouldn’t have been possible without the strong partnerships formed over many years with Peel Ports and Mazdon Construction. We are excited about the completion of the new facilities and the future growth opportunities this will offer.”
