This was the port’s busiest month for steel in more than two years, when 93,000t were handled at the site in July 2021.
An initial 8,000 square feet of the newly created warehouse space is already in use. A second phase of construction work to build an extra 12,000 square feet of the terminal is ongoing and scheduled to be completed in December.
“We’re really pleased to have seen such an increase in demand for steel handling at our port in recent months,” Peel Ports Group Mersey Ports Director Phil Hall says in a note seen by Kallanish. “This positive news led to us choosing to increase the size of our facility, which offers customers the chance to expand their capacity, as well as improving our handling facilities at the port.”
