We've been involved in many weird and wonderful projects over the years which have put our particular skills to the test. Delivering 2 white rhinos alive and very much kicking springs to mind!

Throughout our history, we've demonstrated our ability to lead and add value to a diverse range of projects. We've moved boats, planes, trains, armoured tanks, arranged countless heavy lifts and moved an entire Tarmac factory.

In 2014 we were the agent for a vessel chartered to move two luxury motor yachts from the UK to more glamorous settings in the Mediterranean Sea. The yachts were sailed down the River Orwell, brought alongside the M/V Lifter at Harwich International Port and lifted from water onto the deck using the ship's own crane:

In 2013 we were involved in a project to move specialist subsea bouyancy devices from the UK to Turkey for the Turkey / Cyprus freshwater pipeline:

In 2012 we were nominated as agent for the M/V Sudkap when she arrived at Newport to discharge a locomotive directly to tracks on the quay side:

In 2007, Grange Shipping were recruited to provide Port Agency and Project Management services for the decommissioning and relocation of the High Speed Ferry Linkspan at Harwich International Port.

We arranged welfare facilities, accommodation, tugs, surveyors, crane hire, equipment hire and a variety of other services on behalf of the Swedish company contracted to complete the project.

The decommissioned High Speed Ferry Linkspan was towed away (uphill by the look of this photo!) from Harwich International Port  by the North Sea Tug Barracuda on The North Sea Barge Viking 2.

Following our successful involvement in the project, Grange Shipping were contracted by the same company to assist with the installation of the new Upper Deck Linkspan at Berth 2, Parkeston Quay, Harwich International Port in 2009 / 2010.

We believe contracts and projects such as these rather uniquely demonstrate our ability, innovation and professionalism.
