A £400m freight terminal near Salford has got planning permission.
The Port Salford exchange, a rail terminal built on the banks of the Manchester ship canal, will allow the transfer of freight between rail, road and sea and will handle 5% of Great Britain's container movements.
The plans include road and rail infrastructure, two new container ship berths, 150,000 m2 of rail-linked warehouses.
Property firm Peel will develop the scheme advised by Indigo Planning.
