Welcome to Portico

As a deep water cargo terminal close to the main shipping channels, Portico is ideally positioned to handle your goods from ship to shore and beyond.

Located within Portsmouth International Port with direct access to the national motorway network, we’re the first choice for customers looking for an efficient and cost-effective cargo handling and stevedore service.

Fresh produce is our core business, from pineapples, sweet potatoes, citrus to tomatoes, not to mention the majority of bananas eaten in the UK. We also help make sure the country is sufficiently supplied with its much-loved avocados. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously.

But we handle more than your five-a-day, including break bulk, project cargo, palletised and containerised goods. If it arrives by sea and needs lifting and shifting, we’ll take care of it at our deep water cargo terminal.

If you need customs agency and freight forwarding services, our experienced in-house teams can take care of you. With all these services under one roof, we can strip goods, sort inspections, scan, clear and get your goods out the door in a matter of minutes.
