LCR Apprenticeship Ambassador Peel Ports Receives Prestigious Maritime Industry Award

The Mersey Maritime Industry Freight and Logistics Award 2019 was recently awarded to Liverpool City Region Apprenticeship Ambassador employer Peel Ports. The award recognises a major contribution to freight and logistics sector, either on a specific freight initiative or on a combination of measures and initiatives that have enhanced the efficient movement of freight and improved wider supply chain and logistics activity, locally, nationally or internationally

On collecting this award their COO, Patrick Walters, had this to say:

“We are delighted to have won the Freight and Logistics award at the prestigious MMIA19. Peel Ports are leading the way in bringing enhanced resilience and efficiency to the supply chain. By offering a viable alternative to southern ports, the Port of Liverpool is supporting much needed change in the freight and logistics sector that will ultimately reduce costs, road miles and carbon emissions.”

Peel Ports is a member of the Liverpool City Region Apprenticeship Ambassador Network. This is made up of exemplary employers who are the flagbearers for apprenticeships in the region. They currently employ seven apprentices who are themselves individual ambassadors for the apprenticeship programme.

Chris Eriksen, Skills Broker for LCR Apprenticeship Hub extended congratulations on behalf of the Hub team:

“It’s well-deserved recognition for an organisation that not only provides the backbone to the region’s maritime industry, but creates outstanding opportunities for young people to develop careers in the sector via their apprenticeship programme.”
