New warehouse at port of Grangemouth


Forth Ports has opened a £2M warehouse in Grangemouth for fish feed supplier EWOS Scotland. The bespoke storage warehouse, covering an area of 4,640 m2, can accommodate over 6,000t of bulk raw materials at any one time.

EWOS is based at Westfield, near Bathgate, around 20 minutes from the port, and manufactures fish feed pellets for fish farms across Scotland and for export to various other countries.
A global leader in farmed salmon feed, EWOS was acquired by Cargill last year. 
EWOS has commenced using the warehouse as part of a contract with the port to handle a significant amount of its bulk raw material requirements. The port will manage all of the cargo handling and warehouse management on behalf of EWOS.
The cargo was previously handled in Perth (Scotland’s only municipally-run general cargo port). Transferring to Grangemouth allows larger vessels and volumes to be handled, while road miles are also reduced, said Forth Ports.
Perth is on the River Tay and vessels have to be piloted through the Port of Dundee, also part of Forth Ports, to access it. There have been complaints about excessive pilotage charges.
