The area's central location and its excellent road, rail, sea and air links offer strategic advantages to all forms of national and international commerce and trade. Shipping freight forwarding, manufacturing, processing, retailing and distribution all enjoy the benefits of an ideal business location.
Birkenhead Docks are part of the Port of Liverpool, one of the UK's largest and most diverse ports, handling over 33 million tonnes of cargo per year and serving a growing network of routes linking with more than 100 global locations including North America, China, India, Australia, the Middle East and South America.
Wirral sits at the centre of a unique SuperPort region, created by the combination of the Port of Liverpool, Liverpool John Lennon Airport and the Manchester Ship Canal, under the single ownership of the Peel transport and property group. This creates synergies to benefit all sectors of industry and commerce.
The city of Liverpool, which is Wirral's near neighbour, complements the commercial potential of Wirral and is easily accessible just across the River Mersey by road, rail and ferry.
Manchester and Chester are also within close proximity to Wirral with excellent transport connections to both cities
