P&O Ferrymasters has announced that it has further expanded its supply chain network by opening an 800 square metre warehouse at Liverpool Port.
It is hoped that the new warehouse will support customers with cross-docking operations and feed its connection with P&O Ferries’ Liverpool-Dublin sailings.
The warehouse - which will be open 24 hours a day and comprise eight loading bays supporting trailer and container operations - will give the logistics company an increased capacity to handle the projected uplift in daily full and part-load shipments across the Irish Sea. It will also support daily groupage and cross-docking operations, where loads from more than one customer are consolidated.
Andy Apsley, P&O Ferrymasters’ general manager Ireland, said: “Following feedback from our customer base, we are introducing a cross-docking facility at Liverpool Port which will enable all customers to benefit from our portside location, streamline their logistical requirements and ultimately reduce their costs. Industry-leading IT systems such as load and cost optimisation and track and trace visibility will further enhance the customer experience.”
“We manage more than 800 trailer movements a week into and out of the United Kingdom and our unique value proposition is being able to offer our customers – who come from all sectors including retail, fast moving consumer goods, automotive, and horticulture – a seamless, reliable and punctual service between Ireland, Britain and continental Europe.”
