Felixstowe Port Container Services (FPCS)

Comprehensive inspection, cleaning and repair facility for empty containers

Felixstowe Port Container Services Limited (FPCS) provides a comprehensive inspection, cleaning and repair facility for empty containers. Services offered also include reefer repair, pre-trip inspections, cleaning, and container sales.

Established in 1996, FPCS has quickly developed a reputation as a secure, high quality facility and has expanded its range of services to an increasing number of the port’s shipping lines and agents.

The depot is built on reinforced hard standing and is serviced by the latest double-lift, empty container handlers. In keeping with environmental requirements, the facility also has a purpose-built steam wash system for safe waste treatment.

Having the advantage of being on-port, the transfer of containers on to the terminals is easily accomplished and activities fit closely with the port’s core business of container handling.

Information technology plays an increasingly important role within the business. FPCS is connected to the Destin8 community system to facilitate the fast recycling of container equipment. Reporting is generated from a sophisticated container control system and is available to customers via email.

Investment in modern facilities and equipment, coupled with, an experienced and highly skilled workforce, ensures that FPCS continues to meet changing customer requirements.
