UM Terminals has made a multi-million pound investment in one of its key strategic terminals. The investment has been focussed on the company’s Regent Road terminal in Liverpool, UK, which is also home to the company’s head office. The improvements at Regent Road form part of UM Terminals’ strategic growth plan to ensure the breadth of product expertise, bulk liquid storage capability, value-add services and sustainability credentials remain industry-leading.

The investment, which has taken place in recent months, was also an important part of the onboarding of new customers, ensuring that the business was able to meet their specific requirements. A number of tanks at Regent Road have been upgraded to keep up with the demand for storage in the Liverpool area. One major enhancement at Regent Road has seen the introduction of dual dock loading with customers now able to load and discharge cargo at Huskisson Dock and Canada Dock, reducing delays due to congested shipping berths.

The investment has also supported UM Terminals’ expansion into a broader range of products which now includes chemicals, industrial oils, vegetable oils, fertiliser and key growth areas of biofuels and biofuel feed stocks. The company is also transferring across to low carbon tank heating technology, part of the wider UM Group’s sustainability strategy. Phillip McEvoy, managing director of UM Terminals, says: ‘Regent Road is a key strategic terminal and this multi-million pound investment will ensure that it will continue to meet and exceed the expectations of existing and new customers.’
