Maritime Services

OCS has many years experience in the transport sector which means we understand the challenges of managing the peaks and troughs of customer flow on a 24/7 basis.   

Our expertise in these unique environments enables us to deliver a range of safe, efficient and secure services - Integrated Landside Operations, terminal services and security services - at two of the UK’s major ports.     

Our Integrated Landside Operations team have vast experience which includes the safe mooring and let go of passenger ferries and cargo vessels arriving and departing the port. The operation of the linkspan bridges to facilitate the unloading and loading of 2.4 million vehicles per annum, ensuring the most efficient vessel turnaround process is maintained in one of the busiest roll on roll off ports in the world  

Our operational responsibilities encompass port security which includes maintaining the integrity of the secure restricted zone, vehicle and passenger searches, vessel mooring and let go, unaccompanied freight services, secure and hazardous goods storage and all aspects of an integrated soft service operation.  Our specialist teams deliver office and accommodation cleaning, the cleaning of all outside areas including both ground and high level window cleaning, gutter and gully clearance and community focused tasks such as maintaining the highest standards of beach, pier and promenade cleaning.  

The increase in cross-border trade could lead to an increase in the introduction and spread of insect pests and rodents.  Our experienced technicians can inspect, fumigate and vent shipping containers arriving in port as transported goods may harbour Stored Product Insects (SPIs).    

Our attention to detail and focus on health and safety has enabled us to maintain an accident rate well below the industry average in this unique and often challenging environment.
