Empty container handling up to four times faster with BLOK

BLOK container products deliver a complete solution for all aspects of empty container handling and potential solutions to make future laden handling much more efficient.

BLOK makes the process faster, safer and greener while enabling terminals to make more money with less work and delivers faster turn-around for shipping lines, which can be deployed for ‘slow sailing’ saving fuel and emissions.

BLOK Spreaders are electric spreader adaptors stationed at the port which convert any spreader into a tandem lift spreader able to lift blocks of 2 columns of empty VTLs in one lift.

BLOK Trailers guide, transport and then feed twistlocks into the corner castings. Automatic jigging speeds up spreader operations.

The BLOK Rig automatically strips and feeds SATs into the corner castings and will remove and fit the twistlocks from containers in single, tandem and VTL. The basic manual BLOK Rig can fit four twistlocks semi-automatically under a container, and remove four twistlocks semi-automatically from a container.

The BLOK Cert also makes use of the BLOK Rig and offers a proof test load and certification.

Situated just 30 miles from the North Sea, Perth Harbour connects easily to the area's excellent network of motorways, dual carriageways and national rail network, making it ideal for fast and easy transportation of goods to all areas of Scotland and Northern England.


Perth Harbour provides a lower cost alternative to larger coastal ports and, by cutting haulage miles, generates both financial and environmental benefits.


Open to shipping round the clock, Perth Harbour accepts coastal and dry bulk ships up to 90 metres in length, carrying up to 2,500 tonnes from Europe, the Baltic or Scandinavia.

Because of its scale, vessels can be received on one high tide and depart on the next, ensuring maximum efficiency.


Cargoes passing through Perth Harbour range from traditional agricultural related cargoes such as animal feedstuffs and fertilisers to timber, chemicals and baryte ore.

Masters of vessels should note that the Dundee compulsory pilotage area extends to a western limit delineated by a line extending from, on the north side, the rivulet called the Burnmouth of Invergowrie to; on the south side, the place where the Monastery of Balmerino was situated. This area includes both the Tay road and rail bridges.

Located within a thriving business hub, and only a short distance from the city centre, the harbour also benefits from a growing community of commercial neighbours, including some of Perth's most successful and long-established companies.

Navigation of the River Tay between Dundee and Perth requires pilotage, which is arranged by Forth and Tay Navigation Service. The Perth Harbour Master will arrange for the services of local qualified pilots to assist vessels in transit between Balmerino and Perth. The contract for the services of a pilot is between the pilot and the vessel's owner and the account will be submitted directly from the pilot to the shipping agent. Masters are strongly advised to make use of this facility although it is not compulsory and is not provided under the terms of the Pilotage Act 1987.
