Cargo Handling Services

Our Cargo Handling teams are based at Felixstowe and Southampton. We also have the ability to carry out projects at our Midland depot at Cannock. Collectively our Cargo Handling team has over 175 years’ experience solely within the packing, repacking, unpacking and unloading and loading of goods for onward transportation.

Our cargo team can offer a number of services.

•Imports - For imports we can collect your cargo from the quay using our internal shunting team Devan cargo straight to curtain siders or into other containers to wait for collection. We can also assist with damaged cargo which needs to be repacked, palletised or disposed of.

•Exports - We can receive your cargo into our ISO 9001:2008 depot to load, lash and secure your goods. Our in house shunt team will then deliver your goods to quay.

•Collection and delivery of your goods can be arranged via our Specialist Haulage department, making the process easier and quicker for you. If you require loading at your customer’s premises, please enquire with our team about our ability to load on site at your customers premises.

•In addition, if your cargo is transported at night and over weekends, we can arrange for your cargo to be received around the clock with prior notice and acceptance.

We routinely handle Project Cargo within the oil & gas, construction, energy, maritime, mining and heavy machinery industries. We also have the ability to handle your complex transport logistics for out of Gauge (OOG). For complicated cargo we would be happy to advise or assist with the load plan, just contact one of the team to discuss.
