Peel Ports appoints strategic commercial director
23 January 2024
MARCUS CONNOLLY joins the port operator with more than 25 years of experience in international container shipping and logistics, having held roles at A.P. Moller – Maersk and NYSHEX.
Based at the Port of Liverpool, Marcus will be responsible for developing transformational growth opportunities through group-wide strategic partnerships as well as further developing strong relationships with major shipping lines.
Peel Ports Group chief operating officer David Huck, said: “Currently, 90 percent of deep-sea containerised cargo comes into southern UK ports, yet 60 percent of these are destined for the North. Quite simply, this makes very little sense.
“Marcus will use his new position to help importers better leverage the Port of Liverpool’s close proximity to major distribution centres in the North, improving operational efficiencies across the supply chain.”
