The commitment secures over 500 000 ft2 of warehouse space, 300 ft2 of which is new investment in a bespoke state-of-the-art paper and pulp facility at the Port of Liverpool. The facility will provide a major increase in capacity at Liverpool allowing Jenkins to increase its throughput. Construction on the warehouse is due to begin 2019 and be completed in 2020.

Operating from eight locations in the UK and Ireland, Jenkins provides stevedoring and specialised materials handling, dedicated quayside warehousing, and a range of other warehouse and transport services. The company is owner-managed and been operating for 35 years.

Paul O’Hare, Managing Director of Jenkins said: “We’re really excited about this major new development in Liverpool that will significantly increase our footprint in the UK and allow us to expand the range of services we can offer our customers in the North West.”

Mark Whitworth, CEO of Peel Ports said: “We’re seeing increased demand for imports of paper and pulp products, especially in the Southeast, where our new managed service with Jenkins will provide the capacity for market growth that our customers are looking for.”
