Why are volumes growing again on the Manchester Ship Canal? At the upcoming SHD Logistics Spring Conference, taking place at The British Museum on the 9th of March 2016, Stephen Carr - head of commercial strategy at Peel Ports - will discuss how a 125 year old logistics assett is adding value to the supply chain.
Why are volumes growing again on the Manchester Ship Canal? Can non-road transport options work over short distances? How can these port-related solutions add value to the supply chain?
Join Stephen on the 9th of March 2016 to learn:
- How the canal has applications from fmcg, to chemical and from bulk products to building products
- That lower CO2 does not necessarily need higher cost or investment
- Why the growth in canal usage inspired the next port centric warehouse in the UK to be built in Greater Manchester!
