SCH offers the complete service for the import and export of cars from ship to inland distribution facility or from factory to loading on vessels for global shipment.

Our services are operated under ISO 9001 Quality Assurance standards, guaranteeing a focus on care and efficient handling that ensure cargoes remain in pristine condition throughout our participation in the logistics chain.

Our experienced stevedores recognise their key role in vehicle shipments, whether units are privately owned or newly manufactured. Cars are loaded or discharged to the precise requirements of ship owner and manufacturer, with ramp operations and deck lashing taking place under close supervision.

We handle more than 200,000 ro-ro units a year through the Port of Southampton and play an important part in helping to make the Port the UK’s number one for handling new vehicles.

Our complete service also includes terminal management with our IT systems linked to those of the customer, enabling principals to access real time information on cargo availability, location and status. As part of our vehicle cargo management services, we also provide receiving and documentation services, including the handling of shipping notes and check-in documentation on arrival, cargo inspection and management of quays and lay-down areas.

Our customers put their trust in us to fulfil all their receiving, distribution, loading and discharge requirements, knowing that we handle their valuable cargoes carefully, safely and securely.
