SCH handles all manner of over-sized ro-ro cargoes from wheeled to tracked vehicles and static units loaded on trailers.
We take care of your cargo from the moment it enters the port, receiving and marshalling in secure compounds ready for shipment. We also have an extensive fleet of equipment that includes tugs and trailers for facilitating the handling of unit loads.
Before the vessel is alongside, our experienced cargo managers design efficient stowage plans and loading schedules. When the ship arrives, we respond immediately, utilising our teams of fully trained stevedores who have unrivalled experience in handling heavy ro-ro cargoes.
On completion of any discharge requirements, they will switch operation mode to loading, checking cargoes to verify the correct shipping details, carefully stowing units on board and then lashing to deck.
The process is built around consistently high rates of productivity to ensure fast turnarounds, with our flexible labour arrangements enabling us to handle several ships simultaneously.
Our customers include some of the world’s leading names in ro-ro shipment such as Eukor, Hoegh, and NYK. They all put their trust in SCH’s pedigree as Southampton’s premier stevedore for heavy ro-ro operations.
We can also provide those services to a network of ports throughout the UK, transferring our skills and experience by supplying teams of specialist labour to offer a full turn-key operation extending from terminal management to ship handling.
