Port Operation

Port Operation • Marine Services • Breakbulk • Abnormal Loads

With regular cargoes calling at different ports across Europe and the UK, Collett Marine liaise directly with major port operators on a daily basis. Whether handling breakbulk cargoes, factory production equipment or the components for complete wind farms, our marine services offer the ideal solution for shipments and abnormal loads throughout the UK. 



The Collett project team's expertise planning for breakbulk contracts and heavy abnormal loads allows our marine services division to observe a unique viewpoint for your cargo.  This collaboration between our two departments allows us to approach your project from a logistical angle offering complete project management, port operations and transport solutions.

Our three-acre heavy lift terminal at the Port of Grangemouth is our Scottish headquarters and acts as a central hub for importing and exporting project cargo, breakbulk, abnormal loads and wind energy components.  This depot features a 110Te gantry crane along with other heavy duty handling equipment and has the full use of the Port of Grangemouth, providing facilities for vessels up to 140m LOA. 

This strategic location provides easy access to all Scottish regions and is well positioned for shipping cargo and components to and from the UK for trade with Europe and the rest of the world.  Our range of services include discharging and loading of vessels, stevedoring, cranes, lifting, handling, storage, maintenance, load spreading, lashing, securing, engineering and onward transport of project cargo. 

Our other terminal close to the Port of Goole, the UK’s furthest inland port, is one of the best locations for project cargo due to its fantastic links to the UK road network. This ten-acre depot is complete with 110Te gantry crane and other heavy handling equipment for all kinds of project cargo, as well as secure covered and non-covered storage.

At all our depots we manage an experienced team of professional stevedores, available to service client requirements for one-off, short notice or long term contracts.  Our teams are supported by an extensive fleet of lifting and handling equipment allowing us to offer complete stevedoring operations.

The knowledge and expertise gained throughout our years of working with and through ports on different continents gives Collett marine the edge your business requires.
