The Crown Estate Award for Excellence in a Marine Business: Ferguson Transport & Shipping

Operating along the west coast of Scotland, Ferguson Transport & Shipping have grown its marine operations over recent years, expanding to operate a fleet of six shipping vessels, and growing their operations at Kishorn to meet the needs of the aquaculture sector.

As a long established transport and logistics firm they have helped to support the development and growth of Scottish salmon and are a key logistics and transport provider for companies based across Scotland.

Commenting on their success, Ferguson Transport & Shipping’s Group Managing Director, Alasdair Ferguson said:

“Ferguson Transport & Shipping have grown steadily since it was established back in 1959 and now employs over 160 people across the Highlands and Islands and 200 staff in total throughout the UK.

“We are committed to supporting the businesses and communities across the west coast in which we operate and continue to look at what we can do to strengthen not only our own competitiveness but that of the companies we serve with our growing fleet.

“This recognition of our achievement to date, and of our plans for the future, is testament to the hard work of all of those who play a part helping Ferguson Transport & Shipping  navigate this successful course.”

Andy Wells, Head of Property at The Crown Estate’s Scotland Portfolio, added:

“It is great to see this company grow its maritime business and increase its offer to those working throughout the Highlands & Islands  and wider Scotland.

Scotland’s coast offers a diversity of economic opportunities and resources and Ferguson Transport & Shipping are playing an increasing role in providing services to help companies capitalise on what it can offer. The Crown Estate is delighted to recognise their achievements and we look forward to the company’s continuing success.”
