Proud of our past, ambitious for the future

Logistics Division

Moving goods around the world has been central to Denholm’s business over the years and we have built up a high level of expertise in this field. Today our logistics activities are controlled through Denholm Logistics and comprise Ship Agency, Freight Forwarding, Short Sea Shipping, Warehousing, Terminal Operations and Distribution.

Denholm Wilhelmsen, which is a joint venture with the Wilh Wilhelmsen Group from Norway, is one of the UK's leading ship agency companies. In a year they will typically oversee 5,700 port calls in 17 different ports around the UK.

Our forwarding operations are carried out through Denholm Global Logistics, which operates from seven strategic locations around the UK arranging the import and export of goods from and to all parts of the world by the most appropriate means be it by road, sea or air. 

Lacy and Middlemiss our specialist short sea shipping operator focus their attention on the timber trade between the Baltic Sea and the UK.

Denholm UK Logistics, previously known as Denholm Handling, carries out our warehousing and terminal operations from port-centric facilities at Liverpool, Tilbury, Felixstowe and Warrington, where it has in aggregate 1.5 million square feet (150,000 square metres) of undercover storage and over 20 acres of open storage.

Denholm Transport services the global container shipping and general distribution markets from eight key inland and port locations in the UK. With a comprehensive range of vehicles and trailers available to them there are not many loads that they cannot handle.

In Ireland, the full range of services is offered under the name of Hamilton Shipping.
