Port services kit

THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT AT EVERY PORT  

Our port services team can manage all aspects of cargo movements arriving and departing from ports across the United Kingdom, including Avonmouth, Portbury and the Port of Tyne. We can also provide the equipment needed to safely deliver cargo to its next destination.

Whichever port you’re working in, wherever your assets need loading or unloading, whenever you need import and export support, we have the in-house resources to ensure everything is handled smoothly – 24/7.

 

HEAVY-LIFT CRANES

We have our own fleet of telescopic mobile cranes and lattice-boom, truck-mounted cranes – some of the most capable units operating in the UK – and they can all be made available to support port-side services.

The fleet includes a telescopic LTM1800 (800te) and an LTM1800D (1,000te), and truck-mounted cranes including an LG1550 (550te) and an LG1750 (750te). We’re happy to provide detailed specs for these units, along with options for transporting them and using them on sites with challenging access.

SPMTS

Our fleet of 120 Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs) provides an unlimited range of lifting options for port-side manoeuvring: different modules with multiple axle lines.

The deck heights of our SPMTs can be adjusted hydraulically to lift and lower the load, and each one can be fitted with its own engine and steering system. We can connect the modules – side-by-side or end-to-end – or we can operate them in synchronised mini-fleets. With this flexibility, our team can deploy the right combination of SPMTs to lift and move virtually any heavy load.

HEAVY TRANSPORT

We’re proud to have a well-established relationship with one of the UK’s foremost heavy haulage firms, Allelys Heavy Haulage Ltd. This means we can offer the widest range of end-to-end specialist logistics for our clients.

Our teams have been working together for many years, and we can often combine our services in a single contract – making port-side, onweard logistics easier from the outset. The fleet includes semi-lowloaders (3 or 5-axle units, with trombone trailers), beam trailers, wafer decks, vessel deck trailers, girder frame trainers (500t, 400t and 200t), and multi-axle hydraulic trailer systems.
