Ferguson Shipping (Kishorn Port) Ltd

Seafreight – With some types of goods that we transport, integrating road and seafreight is the most efficient method.

General Freight – We load ships with our truck mounted mobile cranes as well as the Liebherr 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.

Aquaculture – 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. There are six vessels in operation view more here

Rail Transport – 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 by train to the South of England.
