The city-centric gateway to Scotland

Resting on the banks of the Clyde just ten minutes away from the bustling city centre of Glasgow, Kind George V Dock (KGV) is the main up-river port serving the region. Centrally located, the terminal sits on the doorstep of Scotland's extensive rail and motorway network, allowing for fast and easy distribution of cargo. 

The dock, which opened in July of 1931, is located on a vast site with 32.6 hectares of outside storage and 60,000 m sq of sheltered storage space. King George V dock also boasts a 1586m long quay including a 529m long riverside quay with a water depth of 8.5m. 

The vast storage space, quay and water depth is complemented by state-of-the-art equipment including recent investments such as the purchase of a new multi-docker crane. KGV is able to handle agri-bulks, dry bulks, forest products, renewables, metals and project cargo commodities.
