Cargo Handling

370 WebsiteCargo is handled at Shoreham on both Private and Port operated terminals.

The Operations Division's experienced and skilled stevedoring workforce handles a wide variety of import/export cargoes and provides a rapid and responsive customer service, which is facilitated by the modern fleet of cranes, forklift trucks and mechanical front loading and trimming shovels. The modern Sennebogen cranes are capable of lifting up to 30 tonnes and additional capacity capable of lifting cargo of up to 400 tonnes can be made available at short notice for major projects.

In addition the management and staff work closely with customers to ensure that the required service levels are met and keep pace with the changing requirements of the market place.

Health and Safety is of paramount importance throughout the Port. The Port prides itself on the cleanliness and good management of all its areas of operation which contributes to the excellent safety record. All staff receive regular training in health and safety matters and ongoing staff development is a major feature of operational management to ensure that our customers can be confident that their cargo is in safe hands.

Port operated terminals handle timber, steel, wood chip, bulk aggregates, grain via conveyors/silos, general and project cargoes and heavy lifts.
