We are the port of choice for key oil and gas suppliers, and the growing offshore renewables and decommissioning sectors. In addition we are a logistics hub for our traditional general cargo imports and exports.
Based on the East Coast of Scotland, Montrose Port Authority is a thriving support and service hub for the North Sea energy and shipping industries.
Established in 1493, Montrose Port has developed over the centuries to establish its reputation as a leading centre of international trade and distribution throughout Scotland and northern England. We are known for our flexible approach. Through our port stakeholders we offer a broad range of port related services including agency, stevedoring, storage and bunkering.

Montrose Port Authority has operated as a Trust port for nearly 200 years. In that time, the Trust Board has used its wide range of knowledge and experience to steer the management and development of the Port into the 21st century Port we see today.
The port of choice for oil and gas suppliers, and the growing offshore renewables and decommissioning sectors, Montrose Port Authority takes pride in its flexible approach. We handle all types of cargo with efficiency and the minimum of delay.
