An expanding Felixstowe-based transport company is taking part in a national video campaign to promote the logistics industry.
Maritime Transport already employs 1,200 staff and lorry drivers at its depots across the country and is currently building a new multi-million pound state-of-the-art headquarters on the edge of the Port of Felixstowe.
The company is determined to see the logistics industry continue to flourish and took part in a new video to make people aware of the importance of transport networks and how goods are moved from A to B.
The brainchild of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and ITN Productions, and introduced by news presenter Natasha Kaplinsky, the video explains how Maritime is expanding its operation to meet the needs of its customers – cargo owners such as retailers, carriers and freight managers – in a cost-effective way.
John Williams, the managing director of Maritime Group, said: “Maritime Transport offers cost effective supply chain solutions from ship to shelf.
