Portico Shipping Services

While we’re famous for bananas, there’s more to us under the skin.

We’re owned by Portsmouth City Council, who bought the company in 2008. We’ve transformed from a primarily fruit business, into a multi-million cargo handling operation.

Governed by a board of six directors, including council, Portico, and elected officials, we’re also supported by a strong independent senior management team.

We employ a wide range of staff, including crane drivers, customer account handlers, warehouse and container operatives, quayside staff, health and safety, HR and facilities.
