Peel Ports Group is one of the UK’s largest port operators, handling nearly 70 million tonnes of cargo per year and welcoming 15% of the UK’s total port traffic through its waters.

Facilities include the Port of Liverpool, Manchester Ship Canal, Heysham Port, Clydeport, Great Yarmouth, London Medway and Marine Terminals Ltd container terminal in Dublin. This network handles a diverse range of cargoes including bulk liquids, bulk solids, automotive, energy products, agribulks and containers.

The port operator has invested around £1.2bn over the last 10 years to future-proof its operations and to open up new trade opportunities locally, bringing business to the regions in which they operate. These investments - enabled by an average 10% annual compound growth year on year over the past 10 years - has resulted in 1000s of new, high-quality, skilled job opportunities for people living in coastal communities across the UK.

Peel Ports is increasing the number of rail connections and multimodal services they operate. The group’s port operations are complemented by a shipping line, BG Freight, providing short-sea container services between the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe, and feeder services between the UK and Ireland. Peel Ports Logistics (PPL) provides a comprehensive portfolio of services by land and sea. PPL provides chartering and a range of port services including freight forwarding, customs clearance, ships agency, container haulage, warehousing, storage, and distribution services.

The group has made an industry-leading commitment to become a net zero port operator by 2040, ahead of the UK Government’s target. Initiatives to date include the transition to electric vehicles, use of HVO and green fuel alternatives for its plant equipment and straddle carriers, use of LED lighting and the development of an innovation forum which seeks to find and invest in the latest sustainable and green procurement solutions.

For these efforts, Peel Ports has been recognised with a number of industry awards, including UK Ports’ Port Operator of the Year, Greenfleet’s Commercial Fleet of the Year for its transition to electric vehicles, Maritime UK’s Maritime 2050 award for its support of the UK Government 2050 strategy and Multimodal’s Sustainability Award.
