Marine logistics

We have a proven track record transporting a wide range of cargo from sand and gravel to large bulk materials. We have demonstrated the environmental benefits of utilising the River Thames and waterways in and around London. In 2008 we transported in excess of 240,000 tonnes of aggregate by barge. This is the equivalent of taking 12,000 lorries off our roads.

Types of cargo
- Aggregates                         - Bulk Materials 
- Containers (ISO 20TEU)    - Packaged Materials
- Sand & Gravel                   - Waste

Harnessing nature
The River Thames is tidal from Teddington through London down to the Sea. We utilise the ebb and flow of the tide to provide free propulsion when navigating to and from sites. Add to this the fact that a barge has the capacity of 50 lorries and the environmental benefits are amplified considerably. Read more on Sustainable Transport in London

Network support
Aggregate Industries can supply our ranges of products to any project through the network of railheads, wharves and via road transportation. Our approach to each contract ensures the best use of our logistics services.

We are able to supply both mineral and manufactured products direct to site or into permanent or temporary consolidation centres.
