Quayside Services

You're in safe hands at Montrose Port. Along with the services we provide on quayside, we are proud to work with our partners who provide additional support to keep our customers moving.


Onsite stevedoring at Montrose Port Authority has been provided for several decades by our trusted partners, Rix Shipping (Scotland) Ltd and Whyte Cargo Handlers Ltd who operate material handlers, mobile cranes and FLTs.

Their prime quayside locations offer excellent service to vessels, owners and agents with round-the-clock capability. However, customers can use any company they choose to suit their individual needs.

Both our on-site companies are experienced in handling a variety of cargo including forest products, dry bulk, agribulk, break bulk, unitised and offshore oil materials and equipment

With in-depth knowledge and an outstanding health and safety record, our stevedores have the ability to understand each vessel and efficiently deal with its respective cargo. These specialist teams offer flexibility and technical expertise to meet the requirements of each and every situation.
