Ports Jobs:

For over a decade, Drake has used its unique methodologies to successfully staff several Ports across the United Kingdom. In 1995 senior management at Mersey Dock and Harbour Company decided to outsource the stevedoring workforce in the Port of Liverpool Seaforth Container Terminal. Drake was selected to supply, train and manage a workforce of some 160 highly skilled workers to operate a 24 hour 7 day service. Drake continues to supply the entire workforce encompassing a variety of skills from Crane and Straddle Carrier Drivers to Foremen and Cargo Handlers. Productivity has improved 200% and vehicle turn around time has halved.
Success across all Drake ports operations is the result thoroughly understanding our customer's needs and quarterly reviews with each customer to determine forward performance and productivity targets, training needs and operational changes. Drake has a fully accredited team of trainers for most port skills and proven assessment systems to enhance and improve Health & Safety.

Today Drake handle both Lo Lo and Ro Ro cargo ranging from containers, forest products and steel to grain, trailers and new cars in Liverpool, Birkenhead, Belfast, Dublin, Felixstowe, Tilbury and Purfleet.
