The YEOMAN BANK vessel arrived at the port in late February, commencing a long contract to discharge regular cargoes of aggregate.

With echoes of Aggregate Industries’ historical presence at the Port of Southampton, the vessel arrived at King George V Dock with 30,000t of aggregate from the Glensanda super quarry in Scotland, from which supply was once a regular feature at the port. This is the largest cargo to be unloaded at King George V Dock.


Tom Dynes, director at Solent Stevedores, said: “We’re really pleased to welcome back Aggregate Industries to our terminal at the Port of Southampton.


“Handling bulk cargo is a speciality for our highly skilled team and this contract reflects our position as a leading port operator.”


The aggregate will be used for civil engineering and building projects across the south of England.
