Who are Maritime and how have they grown?

Maritime Transport Ltd (Maritime) is one of the leading transport operators in the United Kingdom and the largest privately owned company in the container transport sector. The Company has been trading since 1974 and today is a major employer in the UK transport industry.

John Williams acquired Maritime Haulage in 2001 and re branded the business to Maritime Transport. Our timeline shows our journey so far. 


As we’ve grown, we’ve diversified into new areas of business and are now able to offer our customers a wide range of solutions.


Starting with just five depots and 136 trucks, as a business we now have a comprehensive depot network throughout the UK and employ over 2,000 people nationwide.
