Stevens is a proud family-owned business that has been operating for over 30 years in the bulk shipping industry. Since the 1990’s the business has moved away from commodity marketing, contract negotiation, shipping documentation and trade settlements, to focus on specialised consultation on projects and equipment hire to the shipping industry.
Our core business activities are now centred on the loading and unloading of various dry bulk products such as fertilisers, grains, meals, and minerals. Specialising in the supply of grabs, hoppers, excavators, and skid steers, we continue to develop new technologies and capabilities to withstand the harsh cargoes handled in today’s environment.
Starting from humble beginnings by Bruce Stevens, Stevens Bulk Services’ first equipment fleet was made up of just two grabs. Bruce began in the shipping industry almost 40 years ago working for the NSW Barley Marketing board as the Shipping Operations Manager. He saw a unique opportunity for a company such as Stevens to disrupt the industry and provide tailored Bulk Services that the larger players could not supply.
By staying agile and true to their humble beginnings, Stevens has been able to expand but still provide that bespoke service that the industry thrives upon. Now with operations all along the Australian coastline from Sydney to Fremantle, Brisbane to Geelong, Stevens Bulk Services continues to provide an unrivalled personalised experience for it’s clients.
With family values at its heart, Stevens prides itself on offering a personalised and tailor-made service when supplying equipment and project management consultation. Whether a project is a one-off shipment or a long-term contract, the focus is cost effective and efficient cargo handling.
The shipping industry operates 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year aligning with our team’s commitment to ensure timely equipment availability and critical reliability. Pairing technologically advanced equipment with our vast experience and knowledge ensures optimised outcomes for our clients.
The Company employs many qualified and highly skilled personnel with a diverse knowledge in shipping, stevedoring, engineering, and fabrication. This broad spectrum of knowledge culminates to ensure a complete coverage of all client shipping requirements and new project management.
Stevens Bulk Services conducts extensive research and development with suppliers in Europe to build grabs that improved productivity. We are focused on continuing innovation and development of our fleet to maximise productivity and discharge rates for the movement of shipped goods.
Stevens always has experienced personnel on the ground for every shipment to ensure smooth product unloading. This level of service combined with advanced equipment technology and reliability means every step of handling the bulk services process is covered.
