About us

Old Ferry Wharf

OFW were established almost twenty years ago, and have overseen the discharge of hundreds of vessels arriving from ports across Europe.  The Company’s head office is situated at the wharf in Barrow Haven, and along with a modern working quay has a 4-acre storage facility.


The management team at OFW have over 40 years of experience in stevedoring and logistics and have expertise in providing haulage across whole of the UK.  In addition to these core services, OFW also provide additional support services to importers – including stock control, customs services, audits and quality control.


In recent years the Company have expanded their operations into sites in Grimsby and Port Clarence, increasing the Company’s presence along the East coast of the UK’s mainland. The Company has a 3-acre site in Port Clarence – situated in the heart of the Teesport industrial district, with working quay and office facilities. The Company’s facility in Grimsby is based on the west side of Grimsby dock, with a large working quay, office /meeting facilities and 2 acres of land for storage.


Across the 3 sites OFW discharged over 100,000m3 of cargo in 2022 and subsequently dispatched the majority of this on behalf of our customers.


OFW are proud to offer a high quality full-package service – tending to the needs of our customers from the moment the cargo arrives on UK shores right through to the delivery at its final customer destination.
