SCOTLINE: Scotline’s timber business

Earlier this year Scotline purchased Transit Medway, a terminal business located less than half a mile from the company’s own business in Rochester. This brought Scotline a second Rochester terminal with undercover storage space to support the company’s core forest products trade. Scotline owns and operates a fleet of seven modern box-hold vessels and three independent terminals – Rochester, Inverness and Gunness – and ships over 600,000m3 of sawn timber a year into the UK and Ireland.

Scotline carried its first cargo in 1979, taking Scots Spruce poles from Inverness to Bremen. As the fleet has expanded, so has the route network, with Riga and Brake being added to Varberg as regular loading ports. Scotline carries regular dry cargoes between UK/Ireland and Europe.
