Roy Brooks is a Director of Scotline Ltd, which is located on the Medway City Estate. Scotline owns 8 vessels ranging between 3,300 and 4,500 tons DWAT with 2 new vessels of 4,750 tons DWAT on order and owners of 2 terminals at Rochester covering 28 acres.
Scotline started shipping logs in the early 1980s from Inverness to Bremen [Germany] and Varberg [Sweden], followed shortly afterwards by regular cargoes of package timber from Varberg to UK and Irish Ports. The company has grown since its humble beginnings and is now the biggest timber carrier from the Baltic States and Sweden to the UK. Roy will give a brief outline of the Company history and modern shipbuilding methods.
