About us


Introducing Maritime Cargo Services

Rob Shelley, partner, established Maritime Cargo Services (MCS) in 1992 with the clear vision of providing a professional freight forwarding company tailored towards the logistics needs of the wholesale and retail industries.


Over this time MCS has evolved into a strong and financially sound company – but we remain small enough to really care about each and every client. Rob Shelley takes great pride in MCS and still runs the company with a very ‘hands-on’ approach. He is involved in all the daily import, export and business development briefings and keeps a tight rein on the finances too. Rob is always available to talk to customers (07775 535303), whatever the time – whatever the question.


Maritime Cargo Services treats every client relationship with upmost respect and sensitivity. No matter how long a client may have been with the company, it can be confident that it will receive nothing but the very best service from MCS.


Client confidentiality is taken very seriously indeed and MCS appreciates that in an increasingly competitive commercial environment, it is absolutely essential to protect client interests at all times. We adhere at all times to our MISSION STATEMENT To Outperform The Opposition


Whilst ensuring that we care about the Environment - Recycle , Re-Use, Reduce

As a leading freight-forwarder we are highly aware of our responsibility to protect our environment for the benefit of future generations.


We are conscious that the shipping and transport sectors are major sources of green-house gas emissions and, as an environmentally responsible company, we look for the greenest option at every opportunity. For example, sea-freight via slow-steaming (slightly longer transit times but 30% less emissions) and UK haulage combining road and rail for deliveries.


And we are very proud of our ISO14001 accreditation. Recognition of our commitment to reduce our impact on the environment.




What our clients say


“Maritime Cargo Services understand our needs as a customer and the implementation of the tracking system has been vital to our business enabling us to track our containers 24/7. They’ve made our importing a lot simpler and less stressful. Thanks Maritime!”
