Shown here is some footage of a pilot boat that was recently expertly delivered by our driver Declan to A Coruna from Cork. This load was 4.85m high, 24m long and 4.2m wide overall. It takes a great team coordinating from our office to organise the shipping, escorts and permits here in Ireland and Spain in order to make Declan's job a bit easier. It then takes the drivers expert hand to ensure that the load arrives safely and you can be sure in using Whitten Road Haulage that our years of expertise will see your load arrive safely and efficiently thanks to our Drivers such as Declan.

Impressive to see how the Cork Pilot boat ‘Fáilte’ draws parallel to the bow of the moving Brittany Ferries ferry ‘Pont-Aven’, as it departs Cork harbour on a warm sunny afternoon, on Saturday, October 3rd, 2020. Cork harbour is a beautiful place, with plenty of stunning views to enjoy, while departing for the open sea, enroute to Roscoff, France. This particular sailing was very enjoyable, though quiet, due to coping with the Corona virus, which was managed excellently onboard. The ‘Pont-Aven’ is a lovely ferry boat, resulting in a very pleasant trip.
From the Cork Pilots website: The Port of Cork Company is responsible for pilotage. Pilotage is compulsary for all vessels in the area between Number 20 Buoy in the Lower Harbour and the quays at Cork. For vessels exceeding 130m in length pilotage is compulsary from 2.5 miles off Roches Point
