Marine services

At Peel Ports Group, our services don’t begin or end at the dockside when we offload or load your cargo. Helping you to get to us with the maximum ease and efficiency is just as important. That’s why we’re not simply committed to providing reliable, safe navigation for all users, we actually have a statutory duty to maintain and conserve the harbours.

Peel Ports Group’s Marine Departments are the first link in the chain of access to some of the most efficient and competitive range of port facilities available throughout the UK. They coordinate and manage the provision of key marine services to shipping operators.

These include everything from tug services, marine pilotage and pilot transfer services… to hydrographic surveying, maintenance dredging, navigation aid provision and mooring services. Wherever your vessel moves in our harbours, it’s scheduled and controlled either through our vessel traffic service or respective local information service control centre. Our Marine team have years of experience in bringing car carriers safely in and out of our port network.

Port security

At Peel Ports we want the equipment and the goods we have on-site to be safe and well cared for. That’s why we make sure that our Port Security Authorities operate according to best in class standards, promising confidence in the safety and security of you and your assets. At sites where we don’t have Port Security Authorities, we use highly trained private security officers operating to our exacting standards to ensure you and your goods are protected.

Each port ensures that the quality of their security isn’t just high, but consistent with the highest expectations of the industry. Each maintains oversight of their port’s geography and the facility infrastructure. So you can have complete peace of mind knowing that, whatever goods you have, they’re being handled and stored in one of the most secure port environments in the UK
