COSCO to trial Liverpool with feeder call

The Port of Liverpool has announced it will receive a vessel call from COSCO on Wednesday, 17th October

JORK, a small feeder will call at Liverpool after a stop in Rotterdam before returning with UK exports. In Liverpool it will unload mainly high value Asian goods for delivery into the supply chain across the UK.


"The Port of Liverpool boasts a consistent truck turnaround time of less than 40 minutes, unrivalled by its peers in the South, meaning cargo is expected to be at its final destination hours after discharge on the Mersey," says a statement issued by Peel Ports’ CEO Mark Whitworth.

Peel Ports recently welcomed China Merchant Marine to Liverpool and will shortly receive another state-sponsored visit scheduled for 23rd October with 20 delegates from the Department of Commerce, Jiangsu Province, set to explore the port.


Peel Ports will look to evolve the trial call by COSCO into a permanent call. It may be the case that COSCO is looking for alternative access to the UK, given the continuing problems at Felixstowe. The line is understood to have been using Zeebrugge as a main port for UK cargo.


“With multimodal access by rail, sea and road to the majority of UK consumers, Liverpool2 is the logical port of call for global lines looking to move their customers stock in the most efficient way,” said Whitworth.


A delegation from Peel Ports is currently in China to discuss phase two of Liverpool2’s development as it continues to try to attract the world’s biggest shipping lines, whilst a senior commercial executive visit to Shanghai will commence on 5th November.


  • Independently-owned container haulier JWT Haulage has told Peel Ports that it is set to increase its revenue by around 30% this year after moving its headquarters to the Port of Liverpool in March. Despite haulage delays at the port earlier this year, JWT says its operation, transporting goods for clients including B&M has gone from strength to strength in 2018. Earlier this year JWT secured five acres of container storage facilities at the port, allowing it to handle larger volumes of goods for distribution to stores across the UK. Jon Whiteley, Director for JWT, said: “There’s no hiding from the fact that congestion issues slowed things down at The Port of Liverpool for a short period over the summer. Despite this, the communication and support provided by Peel Ports has been first-rate, and has allowed us to increase our operation significantly in the past year."
