Monday August 19th, 2019
Port terminal operator, Southampton Cargo Handling, SCH, have become Southampton Port’s leading independent handler of ro-ro traffic following a new agreement with Neptune Lines.
SCH will load and discharge all Neptune Lines ro-ro vessels calling in the Port of Southampton and will be responsible for the handling of the full volume of UK vehicle imports coming into Southampton; which is set to total around 30,000 units per year.
Director Lee Davis explained: “The addition of Neptune Lines to our list of customers will mean that we now handle 100 per cent of the Renault Nissan traffic coming into the port and will provide another boost to our cargo volumes. Securing this work is a further reflection of the high levels of service and expertise that we are able to offer ro-ro shippers.”
SCH, part of the Independent Port Handling Group (IPH) have supported the port and logistics sectors for nearly 30 years and their expertise spans the full range of port services, including rope handling, discharging and loading cargoes and port terminal management which includes receiving and distributing cargoes.
