Stephen Carr, Commercial Director for Peel Ports Group has been confirmed as a Speaker at the Coastlink 2020 Conference.

Stephen will explore Peel Ports’ evolution of the role it is playing in a smarter supply chain, recognising that ports are rarely the start or the end of the journey. Liverpool provides an insight into the possible solutions and has seen recent rapid growth in feeder volume. Now, with the Liverpool2 terminal, it is making the leap back onto global route maps with increasing numbers of direct port pairings.

Peel Ports strategic rationale is clear: what matters most is an efficient door-to-door journey, not just the quay-to-quay leg. With this in mind, Peel Ports have launched their own intermodal rail freight offering.

Stephen joined Peel Ports in 2009 as Head of Business Development for the Mersey Division before moving to his current group role, Commercial Director, in 2017. He started his career with BP, working across a variety of sales and marketing roles for the best part of 12 years, before becoming Sales Director for Manchester based chemicals firm TGD.

Based at the Port of Liverpool, Stephen is responsible for driving the business forward with new and existing commercial opportunities across the group’s diverse portfolio. During his time with Peel Ports, he has played a leading role in strategic projects including the development of container terminal Liverpool2, the growth in the use of the Manchester Ship Canal (as a multimodal logistics hub), and the development of port-centric warehousing throughout North-west England.
