Liverpool 2 dock management
Posted by APM on 12th Dec 2014
APM North West and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Merseyside branch organised their annual joint meeting at Liverpool John Moores University on the 1st December, to hear a presentation from Peel Ports Douglas Coleman about the new 300m deep water river terminal, Liverpool 2.
Liverpool is ideally positioned to take advantage of the rapid growth of Latin American trade and the 3.5bn expansion of the Panama Canal, scheduled for completion at the end of 2015, allowing it to take much larger vessels and helping Panama establish itself as the logistics hub for Latin America.
The Port of Liverpool already handles 45% of all UK container traffic with North America and with the development of its own deep water port facility at Liverpool2 will be able to handle the largest vessels travelling through the expanded Panama Canal and with it a significant proportion of the UKs trade with Latin America.
The speaker at the event, Douglas Coleman, is one of the UKs most experienced Project Directors. He was formally Director at Forth Ports in Scotland and responsible for the re-development of Leith Docks and the Glasgow Harbour Project.
