W. Knight Watson and Co. Ltd. is an independent shipping and forwarding company offering freight services situated in Grangemouth, Scotland. Established in 1890, the Company originally specialised in ship chartering and port agency, serving the many coastal vessels that traded between Grangemouth and the continent. The Company now provides a more comprehensive range of logistics services and remains independent and locally owned.
Our main strength is our staff. We have developed a small team of highly experienced individuals who are fully knowledgeable in all aspects of port agency, customs clearance, forwarding and logistic services. Although based in Grangemouth, EDI links enable us to offer customs clearance and forwarding services throughout the UK. We have established long term relationships with strategic partners in Europe, Asia, North America and Australia which enable us to confidently offer solutions to your logistics challenges.
We have a proven track record with a varied client base from small and medium size enterprises through to multinationals. Our independence means that we can be flexible in order to meet our clients’ logistic requirements.
We utilise up to date computer software packages to ensure that client’s individual requirements can be met fully, and will commission bespoke programs if felt they will offer additional benefits.
We have operated a Quality Assurance Program for many years and are accredited to BS EN ISO 9001:2008. We have also been AEO approved since 2008.
