Launched in 1997 as a privately owned company, Major Freight Services is one of the ‘new breed’ of international shipping and forwarding agents in Northern Ireland.
Based in Belfast, the city that launched Titanic, Major Freight Services has grown out of a heritage steeped in nautical history. The breath-taking dockland cranes dominating the Belfast skyline, evoke memories of the shipping and industrial innovations Belfast – the city that launched 1,000 ships – has led.
As Northern Ireland evolves and Belfast finds its place as a cosmopolitan hub, the province has enjoyed a new lease of life in recent years, with a surge in retail, commerce, finance, hospitality and tourism. Major Freight Services has found its place at the heart of this expansion, importing commodities for growing and thriving businesses and exporting goods from Northern Ireland to the far-flung reaches of the globe.
Although still a young company, senior staff have worked for many years in the shipping industry and the diverse blend of talents they bring, means the company can work with an equally diverse range of clients, importing the finest luxury leather suites from Milan one day and sending containers of relief goods for aid projects in Africa, the next.
Proud of Northern Ireland’s heritage and inspired by its future potential, Major Freight Services has become recognised as one of the most efficient and competitive shipping agents in the province.
