Liverpool Port Responds to Fears of 7,000 Trucks Delayed at Dover
Peel Ports Group Commercial Director Stephen Carr said Port of Liverpool facility is ideally placed to contribute to the “Team UK Approach” needed to overcome major Brexit delays at Dover, following a stark warning from cabinet minister Michael Gove.
- The Dover Straits now accounts for roughly 75% of all ferry trade with the continent.
- Much of the UK’s warehousing is situated in the Midlands and North of Britain.
“The Port of Liverpool is uniquely positioned to offer this proximity to market, which allows goods to reach their end destination more reliably and with less reliance on increasingly scarce truck drivers.”
