Captain Container (Storage and Handling Services)

In late 2013, Quay Cargo Services established a joint venture with Belfast-based Stevedoring Company William Reid Ltd to provide modern container handling and storage facilities for customers in a secure location at York Dock, Belfast Port.

Captain Container draws on the skills, experience and expertise of both companies who identified an opportunity to provide customised husbandry services for both empty and laden containers. The firm offers eight pieces of ground-based handling equipment with a lift capacity of 12–48 tonnes. Utilising ground-based equipment with a large lifting capacity means that the handling of cargoes for customers is less restricted by adverse weather conditions in the Port.
