Liverpool to become more direct call for large ships


The UK Port of Liverpool is expected to become a logical and more direct call for large ships entering or passing through Europe, from Panama, especially, once the widened Canal is opened in 2014, the Shipping Gazette informs. 
The larger ships will then be able to pass from Asia through the Pacific Ocean into the Atlantic.
Liverpool's new deep sea 'Liverpool 2' container facility will be capable of handling the large vessels serving this trade. The new will enable the handling of up to 1.5 million TEU when it is completed in 2015. In addition to being well placed to serve the heavily populated North England, Liverpool is a natural hub for Ireland and Scotland, and has good feeder links to northwest Europe.
The Chinese export market is crucial to the UK, with the UK container market as a whole constituting 70 per cent of imports from the Far East.
Traditionally most Far East container imports landed at ports in the southeast of England, but the supply chain is expected to shift in the future.
The Port of Liverpool is also a major and growing UK gateway for goods exported from India. With rising inland transportation costs and CO2 emissions will mean that Liverpool port will be a greener and much more cost-effective solution.
Mumbai-based Ravindra Gandhi, director of Hans Maritime Services Pvt Ltd, who represents the Port of Liverpool in India said: "Around 60 per cent of current trade from India to the UK ends up within 150 miles radius of the Port of Liverpool. Its central position in the UK offers significant cost savings as well as the added environmental benefits of a more efficient supply chain."
