Forth Ports confirms major Multimodal presence – again

Forth Ports provides high levels of handling and logistics-related services to customers who are looking for solutions to move goods cost effectively and efficiently. We operate eight ports – Dundee on the River Tay, Tilbury on the River Thames and six ports on the Firth of Forth – Leith, Grangemouth, Methil, Burntisland, Kircaldy and Rosyth.

Within and around the Firths of Forth and Tay, Forth Ports manages and operates an area of 280 square miles of navigable waters, including two specialised marine terminals for oil and gas export.

We deliver high levels of professionalism in ship handling, pilotage, navigation and towage.

Grangemouth is Scotland’s largest container port and approximately 9 million tonnes of cargo are handled through the dock facilities each year. Of this, 2.5 million tonnes is dry cargo representing incoming raw materials for Scottish Industry and outgoing finished product. Grangemouth is ideally located at the head of the Firth of Forth in the heart of Central Scotland. It is immediately adjacent to the Scottish motorway network allowing rapid transit of goods serving customers throughout Scotland and the North of England.

The Port of Dundee is the most northerly owned by Forth Ports and is located on the north side of the Firth of Tay on the East Coast of Scotland. As well as a Forest Product Specialist and Oil & Gas Offshore Support Facility, the Port of Dundee handles a range of general and bulk cargoes.

The Port of Burntisland is ideally located for customers on the north side of the Forth who can take advantage of Burntisland’s ability to provide transport and distribution by sea, rail or road in this developing area of Scotland.

The Port of Methil on the northern shores of the Firth of Forth has two docks able to take vessels up to 3,000 dwt. The Port specialises as a woodpulp and timber distribution centre. These two commodities contribute most of its traffic. Dry Bulk, fertiliser imports, road salt in winter for Fife Council and export stone and coal are further commodities handled through the Port.

The Port of Kirkcaldy is being reopened this summer after 20 years for specifically the grain trade but is suitable for most small coasters and additional cargos such as timber, grains and fertilizer.

Leith is the largest enclosed deepwater port in Scotland and has the capability to handle handymax ships up to 50,000 DWT. The port offers a full stevedoring and cargo handling service and is well equipped with modern cranes and equipment. Storage is available in modern, secure, single span transit sheds or in surfaced open compounds. The port offers excellent rail and road connections.

The Port of Rosyth offers tremendous potential for businesses that require a riverside location for the import of raw materials and the export of finished goods. The Port is located eight miles from Edinburgh and 40 miles from Glasgow on the north shore of the Firth of Forth immediately west of the Forth Road and Rail Bridge and is well sited for the main North Sea shipping lanes and oil and gas fields. Rosyth enjoys excellent road links with the Scottish and UK motorway network to the main centres of population.

The Port of Tilbury is London’s major port, providing fast, modern distribution services for the benefit of the south east of England. It is the UK’s leading paper handling port and has a strong position in containers, bulk commodities and construction and building materials.

Tilbury’s strategic location on the River Thames makes it the natural point for distribution. Serving the UK’s market for forest products, general cargo, vehicles, grain and other bulks, the port offers customers excellent transport links to and from the capital and across the South East.
