A personal approach

The maritime world recognises and acknowledges our personal and people-based approach, whereby the safety and well-being of our employees always comes first. Our communication is personal and transparent, because we understand that a standard approach simply does not work in the shipping industry. Our partners require solutions tailored to their unique needs, vessels and markets. The short communication lines are greatly appreciated, as is our 24/7 availability.

Moving forward: Innovation in the maritime sector

We are one step ahead of legislation and regulations, always looking to move forward. Once innovations or new rules are on the horizon, our plans have already been made. Our partners do not want any uncertainties; they are looking for progress and efficiency without unnecessary obstacles. At MF Shipping Group, you can count on us to achieve just that.

Short lines of communication

Our team at the office in Farmsum/Delfzijl constantly monitors business by maintaining close lines of communication both with our colleagues on board and with shipowners. We are ready to take immediate action for any operational challenges when necessary, 24/7 and 365 days a year.

We regard ourselves to be one big close-knit and unique family, both at sea and at the office. Cooperation is ingrained in our DNA, and we are committed to offering our partners the best possible service, whenever and wherever, through dedication and determination.
