Through the schools’ close partnership with the Mersey Maritime Group, we have been able to set up a number of visits to the Maritime Engineering College Northwest for our year 7 pupils, to learn more about the importance of the maritime sector to the local area, and future developments including the Superport. Pupils will be learning more about International Trade and Logistics, by taking part in a business simulation game among other activities
The SuperPort is part of the wider North West Atlantic Gateway Strategy. By integrating the Mersey Ports, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, the Mersey Multi Modal Gateway in Halton, which handles over 100,000 containers a year it is expected that the SuperPort will create up to 28,000 new jobs – many in process, plant and machine operatives, but with significant opportunities for managers andseniorofficialstoo.
Logistics is at the heart of the SuperPort project. The efficient flow of stock between bases is essential to the profitability of an organisation and managers are constantly looking at how to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
