Why choose John Good Shipping?
We have unrivalled experience, having started business as a ship agency over 178 years ago. We were there at the advent of paddle steamers and iron ships and have, since then, pioneered the development of high quality shipping services in the UK. We can use that depth of experience to your advantage.
With offices in every major UK port and a strong presence overseas, we can provide a personal, hands-on service wherever you, your vessels, your colleagues or your goods are. This is supported by our industry-leading IT system which allows you to have unrivalled levels of control, visibility and ownership of your cargo throughout the supply chain. Whatever your requirements, you can be sure that we have the experience, ability and capacity to support you.
We aim to offer all of our customers the best possible service, provided by a single, named contact who will look after your interests, from start to finish. This means that you can be sure that an experienced staff member, who understands your business, is available to talk whenever you need to. This helps to ensure that your cargo, ship and crew are in safe hands.
Though confident that the service we provide is of the highest possible standard, we’re never content to rest on our laurels. Instead, we work tirelessly to ensure that we remain at the forefront of the industry by playing an active part in a range of industry bodies including: the British International Freight Association, the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, the United Kingdom Warehousing Association, the Baltic and International Maritime Council, the Road Haulage Association and the World Wide Ship Agency Association.
Last but not least, our team is incredibly loyal and experienced, with a large percentage of our workforce having been with us for 10 years or more. We do everything we can to nurture and develop that talent through industry-leading staff training programmes. The resulting dedication and experience of our team enables us to provide services of the highest quality.
