"Thanks to Solent Stevedores from Team Leidos for their fantastic support as we recently conducted a major recovery of military equipment at Southampton port."
"As a commercial port, it wouldn’t normally be a location where such activity takes place, so this was a steep learning curve for all parties involved (military personnel, commercial hauliers, rail operators…) – but Ray, Alan & the team kept cool and were most helpful and flexible all the way, meaning the operation was a great success in the end."
Leidos Europe Ltd
"A massive thank you for your superb efforts this week"
"Despite shippers declaring (at the last minute) different cargo weights, you still managed to get the job done! I am pleased to say that my colleague in London has had nothing but positive comments about Solent Stevedores.
"In all the years I’ve worked with your teams from Bulk/Fruit/Project, you have NEVER let me down. Long may it continue..."
Office Manager, Southampton - "K" Line (Europe) Limited

Grain Store Manager - Openfield
"A special thank you to each and every man on your team at Immingham for all their hard work, you are a real credit to the Immingham Shipping Community"
"May I express and extend my thanks for all the efforts of the Solent Stevedores team so far in your new venture on the Humber.
"I recently spoke with one of our MOL Port Captains, and the question was raised how he thought your staff were performing at Killingholme. His reply was they all work hard, listen to every word and instruction given and, in addition to that, they are all polite, most helpful and want to go the extra mile. He is looking forward to the future having your guys working on our vessels every month.
Port Manager, Humber - Inchcape Shipping Services
"I would like to put on record my appreciation for a job very well done."
"You have just completed loading MV Bulk Juliana with steel recycled metal at Southampton. I would like to put on record my appreciation for a job very well done.
"In particular, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues on their ability to load over 40,000 mt of cut grade recycled metal without any "stevedore damage" being reported by the vessel. This for me is an absolute first. As the Charterer of the vessel this has made my life far less complicated than it could have been."
American Iron and Metal LP - Montreal, Canada
"Please thank your team for me for their fantastic work and assistance with the vessel..."
"I have just spoken with my boarding agent who handled the vessel silver cloud on Sunday. He could not praise the work of all Solent Stevedores staff enough. We had the odd issue with the vessel and each time a member of Solent Stevedores came along to help.
