P&O Ferrymasters today announces that it has further expanded its supply chain network by opening an 800 square metre warehouse at Liverpool Port to support its 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.”
