The main activity

MACS Maritime Carrier Shipping GmbH & Co. has been a trusted name for over 35 years by customers in Southern Africa, Europe, the UK and USA/ Mexico.

We offer specialised shipping solutions within our three dedicated trade routes on our multipurpose fleet which can accommodate almost any load, from bulk and breakbulk, project cargoes and containers.

Our vessels are all equipped with their own cranes with a lift capacity of up to 240 tonnes, giving us the ability to load and unload a multitude of cargoes effectively and safely.

The open hatch configuration and movable horizontal and vertical hold separations and the bulk-head design of our vessels enables the flexibility to cater for a wide range of cargoes in an optimally efficient and safe manner.

We will get your cargo to where it needs to go, professionally, on time and with a personal touch.
