Ports & Stevedores

Chartering - Port Operation - Project Management - Heavy Transport - Marine

Our Marine Teams can oversee the complete management of your cargo whilst our dedicated Stevedores will undertake the loading or unloading of your cargo at Ports across the UK.

Handling individual one-off pieces, factory production equipment or the components for complete wind farms, our Marine Team have the experience and knowledge to facilitate your specific requirements.  Operating from our dedicated Heavy Lift Depots at the Ports of Goole and Grangemouth our in-house Appointed Persons prepare lift plans, risk assessments and method statements to ensure safe lifting under CPA Contract Lift Conditions, while all Stevedoring Operations, including Ship's Discharge and Loading, are managed by our Marine Division.

At both of these portside depots we manage an experienced team of professional Stevedores, available to service client requirements on a one-off, short notice basis or for longer-term contract work.

Our Marine and Stevedores Teams are backed by an extensive fleet of lifting and handling equipment allowing us to provide a complete Stevedoring solution. We also have the full flexibility, capability and experience to project manage and coordinate all port services in any other UK ports, European ports or further afield.

We are experienced in handling a variety of cargoes, ranging from steel pipes and equipment for the offshore oil and gas industry (including decommissioned cargoes) to breakbulk cargo and wind energy components for the Renewables sector. Our highly experienced cargo handling Team and Stevedores are supported by a range of modern plant and equipment, with all work carried out in the safest possible ways due to our SHEQ procedures and use of job-specific risk assessments, method statements and lift plans created to exacting standards.

We also offer the expertise to lash and secure your valuable cargo in the hold, on deck or wherever the stow may be, including designing load spreading systems so you can be confident that your cargo is safe and secure. Working to the code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage, our riggers provide a shipping line, underwriters or shipper with the confidence that their goods are safely and professionally secured.
