UK port operator, Peel Ports, has announced two senior appointments to the company’s Mersey team.
Amanda Harvey has been appointed Head of Bulk Terminal Operations (Mersey) with responsibility for the teams managing Peel Ports agribulks, biomass, rail and dry bulks businesses. Harvey joins the business from operations and logistics roles with Sainsbury’s, B&M Retail and, most recently, Hermes Logistics.
“Liverpool is one of the UK’s leading ports for bulk commodities of all types and has had some major recent developments with investment in its agribulk, steel and biomass facilities,” Harvey said in a press statement.
“It’s also one of the best connected with road, direct rail and the Manchester Ship Canal. I’m looking forward to using my skills from other logistics operations to help provide the best possible service to our current and prospective customers.”
Hinton has been named Head of Sales (Mersey) and will take responsibility for sales activities across all commodity groups. Her team is also responsible for Peel Port’s multi-user warehousing sales.
“The port’s profile has never been higher as we approach the official opening of the Liverpool2 terminal,” Hinton said. “It’s a very exciting time for the business across all of our commodities, not just containers. We have ambitious plans for the future, especially because we’re able to offer an increasingly integrated supply chain service. I’m delighted to be leading the Mersey sales team at such an important point in Peel Ports’ history.”
Harvey and Hinton joined Peel Ports in October and are based at the company’s Liverpool headquarters.
“The logistics sector is changing and our business is growing rapidly. That calls for a fresh approach from the next generation of supply chain leaders, so we’re delighted to have secured these two appointments as we look to expand our operations further,” said David Huck, Port Director.
“Although much of the focus around our company just now is on the Liverpool2 terminal, containers are only one of the diverse cargos that we handle, so it’s essential that we maintain our position as industry leaders in those other sectors. Amanda and Rachel will help us to do that and we are very pleased to have them on board.”
