Container handling at Portico
As a deep water cargo terminal close to the main shipping channels, Portico is ideally positioned for handling containers from ship to shore and beyond. Our quays can handle vessels up to 230m long, ideally sized for a wide range of feeder sized container ships.
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 container handling and stevedore service.
Our four mobile harbour cranes can efficiently load and unload container vessels. We have plenty of space for containers, which are safely managed and positioned by our fleet of Kalmar reach stackers.
SMS Towage, our towage partners, are available to attend ships with as little as two hours notice. This offers an unrivalled level of flexibility for customers who need a quick turnaround. If you need customs agency and freight forwarding services, our experienced in-house teams can take care of you.
