Stevedore Service

Our team of stevedores lash abnormal loads and cargoes in the hold, on deck or wherever the stow may be, including designing load spreading systems so you can be confident that your cargo is safe and secure.

We are experienced in handling a variety of heavy lift cargoes, ranging from abnormal loads, steel pipes and equipment for the offshore oil and gas industry (including decommissioned cargoes) to breakbulk cargo and wind energy components for the renewable energy sector.

Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage

Our highly experienced stevedores are supported by a range of modern plant and equipment, with all work carried out in the safest possible ways due to our compliance procedures, use of job-specific risk assessments, method statements and lift plans created to exacting standards.

Working to the code of safe practice for cargo stowage, our riggers provide shipping lines, underwriters and shippers with the confidence that their goods are safely and professionally secured.
