What we do

As the UK's longest established tug and barge owner, JP Knight has a heritage of innovation in marine transport, towage and salvage. Today our focus is on developing and expanding our river to sea capability not only in the transport of dry bulk cargo, but also in simulation, river surveying and project management.

Navigating over 3.25 million miles, JP Knight has identified a need for a better way to analyse the potential capacity of river systems in combination with inshore or offshore transfer and to provide more accurate hydrographic data on those rivers.

JP Knight's new capability, built on 124 years' experience, offers clients the most comprehensive and completely researched suite of possibilities to deliver tonnages to a previously unavailable efficiency and long-term dependability.

Our operations are underpinned by JP Knight's safety management system, a World first on its introduction, ensuring continuous improvement in safety afloat and environmental responsibility.
