About Us: History
Maritrans (Cargotrans Group Company)
MariTrans was established in 1998 as an NVOCC to compliment the services of MariTrans in Chile. Our office in Chile has provided us with great insight for the U.S.-to-South America trade lane and we have successfully secured a substantial market share for this traffic.
Today, we have expanded our presence to all ends of the globe due to our motivation to form partnerships with our clients and to provide manageable solutions for any situation that may arise. We have managed to diversify the commodities that we ship from construction materials to the machines that are used to handle the materials; we also handle textiles, furniture, marble, tiles, tires, cranes, glass, spare parts, etc.
