Our People

We recognise that our people are our greatest strength and we are extremely proud of the truly talented team we have built. Motivation, drive, enthusiasm, a sense of humour and decades of experience in the shipping industry have combined to provide a balanced and ambitious container management team.

In addition to an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the freight forwarding business, many Maritime Cargo Services (MCS) staff have been recruited from outside of the industry. This includes many from client sectors such as frozen food distribution, retail, shipping management, insurance, manufacturing and construction. This has given the company the benefit of the widest possible range of experience and ideas along with valuable insights into the key requirements of its customers.

Above and beyond the obvious technical skills and experience that MCS demands from its team members, it’s a prerequisite that they are all innovative, responsible, committed, show creativity and attention to detail with an absolute determination to deliver on time and on budget.
