Meet rix cargo solutions

Our History

Rix Cargo Solutions is a key part of the Rix Group, which has been in the shipping industry since 1873, originating in the Humber on the North East coast.

Our roots were established in Scotland in 1958 when Rix Shipping Ltd began carrying limestone and chalk from Whitby to North Eastern Scottish ports. In the ‘60s, Rix shipped lime from the Humber to Montrose to support the Scottish agricultural market. J.M. Piggins Ltd discharged the lime onto the Montrose port side. Rix then purchased this business and formed Piggins Rix Ltd which later became Rix Shipping (Scotland) Ltd.
