Southampton Cargo Handling (SCH) has been supplying services to the port and logistics sectors for 25 years. Our experience and commitment to supporting our customers in their stevedoring, terminal operation and transport requirements have made us a trusted partner in ports and inland distribution centres throughout the UK.

Our expertise spans the full range of port services from mooring ships to discharging and loading cargoes and managing the receiving and distribution of cargoes from port terminals. Our specialist stevedoring skills extend from ro-ro vessels to cruise ships and, through our sister company Cruise Passenger Services (CPS), we also work closely with some of the leading cruise lines calling in the UK to provide ancillary services, such as passenger car parking.

Cargo operations are supported by our own dedicated warehouse close to the Port of Southampton and our flexible and competitive service is underpinned by our specialist labour agency.Pathfinder, enabling us to respond to peaks in demand with up to 400 fully trained staff. SCH is also audited to international quality management standards.

For 25 years, we have recognised that personal service is the foundation of our business – one of the major reasons why we are one of the UK’s premier independent cargo handling companies.
