We invest in

Transport & Logistics

Peel focuses its interests in the transport sector in ports and airports. Our rationale for both is their respective contributions to the UK economy.  

Changes in the pattern of shipping, particularly the increasing use of larger vessels, is creating demand for new and up-to-date port facilities. Travelling by air for visitors to and from the UK, as well as across the country, is essential for both business and leisure purposes.

The Group’s strategic approach to logistics is to combine the strength of our land holdings and transport investments via Peel Logistics Property.


Peel Ports plays a significant role in getting freight off our roads, with major gateways strategically located across the UK: the Port of Liverpool, the Manchester Ship Canal, Heysham Port, London Medway, Great Yarmouth and Clydeport’s Scottish ports, complemented by a container terminal in Dublin.
