Serving the oil and gas industry

With Aberdeen recognised as oil and gas capital of Europe, we load and discharge general cargo of all weights and sizes to and from vessels servicing the world’s major oil and gas destinations. We can provide a dedicated port captain and cargo surveyor. If required, we can also supply lashing and welding crews for any sea fastenings which may be needed. In addition to ship work, we also provide a container handling service with container handling, container storage, loading and stripping facilities.

45mt cap container reach stacker

Assorted forklifts from 5 to 17 tons cap
