Liverpool sets new container record

Liverpool2, The Port of Liverpool’s deep water container terminal, has broken a new terminal record after the MSC Federica docked and exchanged 5,452TEU, the highest number seen from a single vessel in Liverpool since the terminal opened in 2016.

The vessel is part of MSC’s Turkey Canada service which includes calls at Montreal, Liverpool, Sines, Valencia, Barcelona and Tekirdağ amongst other terminals. This service directly links Liverpool to the Far East.

In 2016 owner Peel Ports invested £400 million (US$498 million) into the container terminal to enhance its handling enabling it to operate the largest ships in the world while maintaining other port operations and productivity levels as normal.

The next phase of growth has seen the arrival of a further three STS cranes which are being commissioned and will soon see a further 10 cantilever rail-mounted gantry (CRMG) cranes which will increase the capacity of the terminal significantly, making it capable of managing the unloading of two 380m vessels simultaneously.

Work on this second phase of the project has already started and is expected to be completed during 2021.
