Our People

Maritime business is primarily a Peoples’ business where strong relationships are developed over many years.

Our organisation is also built around our People and their competences. Their abilities stem from their technical training and qualifications and are developed on the job and through the experience they have gained over the years. Amongst these competences is the strong relationship built with operators, authorities and other players within the industry.

These competences, set within a strong framework of Management Process and Controls, allow us to operate an effective and seamless service to our Principals and Clients.

We further believe that central to our Peoples’ business is the personal approach that has been embedded into our culture and is demonstrated through the concept of our dedicated sales representatives and management focus teams.

Whilst we continue to embrace our Maritime traditions, we seek to innovate and shape our services to adapt to current market conditions.

Through our wide range of competences we are able to design our services according to the requirements of our Principals and Clients. Thus, whether there is a need to move cargo faster, work within the highest HSEQ standards, design complex and cost effective solutions, we tailor our services accordingly.

The competences of our People are further strengthened through our strong network of Principals and Forwarding Partners where our role is to design micro solutions around their global services.

Our engineering does not stop at addressing the operational needs of our Principals and Clients but we actively seek to address  management objectives as well, where clear and timely response are key components of our service.

Our Values
Our Values

The Maritime industry has developed around robust values. From the early days of the Maritime industry when the first merchants entrusted their cargo to ship-owners to be carried around the world, trust and its management played a vital role.

We continue to embrace this tradition and have developed an approach built around four core values centered on the concept of building trust and which ensure that our Principals and Clients are placed at the centre of all our decisions and working practices.

These are:

Long Term Vision

Characteristic to our Maritime nature we believe in establishing long term business relationships and favour arrangements that have strong potential for development and growth.

Transparency

In the competitive environment in which we operate we believe that we do not profit on our Principals and Clients but with them, in a transparent manner.

Quality

We place quality at the centre of whatever we do. We believe that quality is achieved through the competences of our People, the design of our controls and procedures as well as the culture of our Company and its Management.

Team Work

We believe in teamwork and encourage the development of strong personal relations between members of our team and those of our Principals and Clients.

Our History

From as early as 1888 the Sullivan family has been active in various sectors of the Maritime industry. Our experience spans the height of the steam ship era in the late 19th century, which had revolutionised the carriage of passengers and cargo, to the large ocean liners/carriers and highly specialised vessels that characterise today’s global trade.

Our Maritime traditions combined with our drive for innovation has shaped our organisation throughout the years and is today the basis of our holistic Service approach.

Today Sullivan Shipping represents the interests of some of the world’s leading ship owners (our Principals) and offers a complete range of Agency and Logistic services.
