Flexibility and first-class stevedoring skills are the essential ingredients when it comes to handling everything from containers to a wide range of general cargo and demanding project cargoes.

Harwich International Port has a wealth of experience in all aspects of container and general cargo handling.

Sloman Neptun operates a scheduled service to North Africa and the Mediterrean, offering two container ships and ro-ro vessels on its UK service, all capable of carrying a vast range of cargo such as containers, break-bulk, project cargo and roro equipment with up to 300 tons piece-weight.

The route links Harwich and northern Europe with Morrocco, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia and Malta.

Two ship-to-shore cranes serve the container/general cargo berth, where the maximum draft is 9.5 metres, and can accommodate vessels of up to 320 metres in length.

The cranes are supported by a pool of terminal handling equipment, including forklift trucks and reachstackers. Large volumes of containers are also shipped on ro-ro ferry services to Holland and Scandinavia.

Harwich is ideally located for serving the South East UK, Midlands and further afield. The excellent rail and road links provide options for handling almost any type of cargo.
