Commercial Opportunities

A unique opportunity

Solent Gateway represents a unique opportunity to drive growth in commercial activity on the Solent, underpinned by both RoRo and LoLo shipping. SGL’s development and operation of Marchwood Port is now providing excellent import and export facilities for rapid movement of goods through the port, with a full range of services available that cover:

  • Vessel loading and discharging

  • Rail loading and unloading
  • Security services.

In addition, the port benefits from specialist capabilities enabling helicopter operations (load delivery to port, helicopter loading onto ships), out of gauge load management, together with rail locomotives and long item (100m+) storage.
