Liverpool Logistics Cluster Strategy (“Superport”)

Liverpool Logistics Cluster Strategy (“Superport”)

TMP working in partnership with Mersey Maritime and other members of a Steering Group, including Peel Group, convened to develop the concept of the Liverpool Superport. This foresees the development of Liverpool as a holistic logistics cluster integrating different modes into one City-regional competitive concept.

TMP commissioned Fisher Associates to research the concept and develop a strategy. The study commenced in March 2007, and was based on a combination of research from existing work and engagement with several leading businesses. The key tasks included:

Provide an evidence base:

  • What are the key facilities and services?
  • How does the Superport concept align with strategic trends in the logistics sectors?
  • How does it align with policy?

Conceptualise and define Liverpool Superport in terms of what is it and what can it mean to whom?

Where and how can the concept impact on:

  • Businesses
  • The local and wider economy

Implementation strategy:

  • Mission
  • Objectives
  • Core competencies
  • Strategies

This was developed based on a review of logistics in the Liverpool City Region covering shipping services, ports, the airport, roads, rail, intermodal and distribution sites, and waterfront development. The strategy was formed on an analysis of the strategic environment, benchmarking against leading logistics clusters, and a review of key trends globally, and particularly in the global logistics and ports industries.
