Ferguson Shipping (Kishorn Port) Ltd
With some types of goods that we transport, integrating road and seafreight is the most efficient method.
We load ships with our truck mounted mobile cranes as well as the Liebher 934 dock shiploader. The ships then take it to the port closest to the end user. This is a far more economical logistical solution than sending by road freight, particularly for Forest Products.
We have a regular fish food delivery service on the West Coast of Scotland from as far South as Arran – Mull – Loch Linnhe, as far West as Loch Hourn – Skye – Uist – Lewis – Harris and as far North as the Shetland Isles.
Vessels in the Fleet
Range from 100 tonne to 600 tonne complete with onboard cranes to load and self discharge. We also have available 29 tonne hydraulic cranes, 2.5 – 11 tonne fork trucks and a tele-handler with shovel. Storage and warehousing is also available.
In 2004 Ferguson Transport purchased the Harvest Anne, which is mainly used for the aquaculture industry, delivering to fish farms on the west coast of Scotland from Lewis and Harris down to the island of Arran and Loch Fyne. Principally a ‘landing craft’ design the Harvest Anne has a front loading ramp and is designed to carry up to 80 tonnes in payload. Her powerful onboard crane allows great flexibility for her multi-purpose duties.
In 2011 Ferguson Transport added an additional vessel, the ‘Carhie Anne’, to the fleet. Like her sister ship the Harvest Anne, the Carhie Anne is designed for multi-purpose duties and includes a front loading ramp and onboard crane.
In March 2011, Ferguson Transport rolled out a liveried fleet of rail swapbodies. This came after a successful 18 months of various trials working closely with WH Malcolm in Grangemouth. The swapbodies carry a variety of products such as aluminium and sawn timber from Fort William to Grangemouth by road, and then on by train to the south of England. Ferguson Transport are currently exploring the possibility of a rail link straight to Fort William, reducing millions of road miles from the dangerous A82 road.
