Sextant Shipping was established in 1986, our office is situated in the Port of Goole on The River Humber, the UK’s most inland port.
We offer a specialist service in the logistics of bulk cementitious products, such as cement, pulverised fuel ash (PFA) and ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS). Sextant has access to a fleet of modern bulk pneumatic cement carriers, which range in size from 1000 – 6800 metric tonne cargo capacity. These self-discharging vessels offer a closed cargo system that is environmentally friendly with no exposure to dust during loading or discharging. This advanced technology means your bulk powder product can be loaded or discharged with no degradation of powder quality even in poor weather conditions.
We also have knowledge in the transportation of cementitious materials in conventional vessels.
In today’s competitive business environment it is essential that you can transport your bulk powder product in the most efficient way possible and that the product arrives at its destination in perfect condition. This requires an Agent who is innovative and flexible, with in depth knowledge of the marine transportation of cementitious goods. Sextant Shipping is unique in that our shipping services work seamlessly from loading to shipping, handling to transport.
