A Stevedore (derived from the Spanish estibador or Portuguese estivador "man who loads") is an individual (or sometimes a firm that employs individuals) who contract to load or unload a ship.[1] In the United Kingdom, they are called Dockers and in the United States and Canada they are often referred to as Longshoremen.
