COSCO calls on Port of Liverpool

Peel Ports credits “strategic, dedicated approach” to the Asian market.

 
   The Port of Liverpool welcomed a vessel call from COSCO on Wednesday.
   The MV Jork called at Liverpool after a stop in Rotterdam before returning to China with U.K. exports. In Liverpool it unloaded mainly high-value Asian goods for fast delivery into the supply chain across the U.K, the port said.
    The vessel call from COSCO, Asia’s largest shipping line and the third largest globally, marks an important milestone for Peel Ports, which will look to evolve the trial into a permanent call, the port said.
   “The arrival of the MV Jork at Liverpool is positive news for the port and is down to the strategic, dedicated approach we’ve taken to the Asian market in recent years,” said Mark Whitworth, chief executive officer of Peel Ports Group. “Our relationship with China has been incredibly strong for a number of years now, and the faith shown by COSCO in the capabilities and infrastructure of Liverpool shows how global perceptions of the U.K.’s shipping ecosystem are starting to shift.”
   The Port of Liverpool has reported 8.7 percent growth in the container sector over the past 12 months.

   Peel Ports recently welcomed China Merchant Marine to Liverpool and will receive a state-sponsored visit from the Jiangsu Province’s commerce department on Tuesday.
   Peel Ports said it already has a strong relationship with crane manufacturer ZPMC, the firm which supplied five ship-to-shore cranes and CRMGs for the Liverpool2 container terminal.
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.

The problem is the Corps of Engineers-maintained lock system would qualify for Social Security if there were such eligibility.

Spot container rates from China/East Asia to the U.S. West Coast stood at $1,531 per FEU as of May 10, up 10.6% year-over-year, while rates from China/East Asia to the U.S. East Coast totaled $2,926 per FEU as of May 10, up 22.2% year-over-year, according to the Freightos Baltic Index.
