Solent Stevedores Ltd commenced operations in the Port of Southampton in February 2000 and since then the Company has built up an excellent reputation as a proficient and professional cargo handling operator. In 2007 Solent Stevedores entered a 20 year agreement with Associated British Ports (ABP), owners of the Port of Southampton, to expand the multi-user bulk terminal and enhance facilities with a joint investment of £7m.  The terminal is rail linked and there is a minimum of 11.7m of water available alongside at all times to accommodate a wide range of vessels - up to approximately 50,000 dwt.  Solent operates with no restrictions according to customers' requirements and together with ABP has developed a significant increase in trade.
