Our vast range of machinery and storage enable us and our Stevedores to assist you at every level.
Our cargo handling equipment includes three cranes capable of handling up to 10 tonne lifts. Two maniscopic telehandlers and one forklift truck facilitate fast and efficient loading / unloading of vessels and are also utilised in warehouses.
New bagging facilities have recently been installed to allow significant tonnages of bulk goods to be bagged before export. Investment in shed space and handling equipment has allowed a greater breadth of cargoes to be handled including bagged cement, stone, timber, tyres and turbine blades.
