In the 1990s, Northern Ireland businesses began to more actively target export opportunities within the European marketplace. Recognising the market opportunity, namely the increased need to offer transportation solutions for Northern Irish companies, Quay Cargo Services was established in 1995.
For over two decades, Quay Cargo Services has been at the forefront of opening international markets for local exporters and importers and supporting the regional economy. To support this mission, Quay Cargo forged strategic partnerships with the leading players within the European Transport Industry. Such was the growing reputation of Quay Cargo that the company was appointed by global container shipping company, Hapag-Lloyd to act as their agent in Northern Ireland in 2003 marketing and selling their extensive portfolio of services.
In an ever-changing, dynamic and truly global marketplace, Quay Cargo Services will continue to do what it is excels at – representing and serving Northern Irish business interests in national, international and inter-continental marketplaces. In essence, local people, thinking globally!
Looking to the future, as Quay Cargo Services celebrates our 25th Anniversary in 2020, we will continue to demonstrate to our customers our unrivalled professionalism, passion, reliability and integrity.
In the future, Quay Cargo will continue to improve our portfolio of services. We will actively seek new opportunities in new markets across Eastern Europe to further support the needs of Northern Ireland’s exporters.
