  • Glasson Dock, a Trust Port under the authority of the Lancaster Port Commission, is a long established port dating back to it’s opening in the 1780’s. Now in the 21st Century the port still thrives, and it’s from here that we operate our Port Services Division.

    We handle vessels of 3500 – 4000 DWAT through the dock and have a range of cranes suitable for both bulk and general cargo discharge / loading.  Substantial areas of covered warehousing and outdoor quayside storage are available together with forwarding and transport facilities. Glasson Shipping services are able to provide a full ships agency service and vessel chartering services if required.

    We act as both stock receivers and stevedores for Mezeron shipping who are based on the Isle of Man and operate a regular weekly service form Glasson Dock to the island. For further information on this service please access the Mezeron webite using the link: www.mezeron.com
