About MCM Shipping B.V.
MCM Shipping is a highly motivated organization with a valuable 20 years of in-house mixed shipping, forwarding and chartering experience.
As a 12-year old boy I was introduced to the world of transportation within the company of my father. I learned which documents are involved and how procedures work. Within the same period, my interest in containerships grew and I bought a 35mm compact camera and start to photographing those ships on the New Waterway river near Maassluis.
At the age of 14, I was so enthusiastic about containerships that I sent letters to each office or local shipping agent in Rotterdam to obtain some fleet lists or other brochures. Internet was just introduced and therefore not yet a valuable resource as it is today. Later on, I sent the same agents a new letter to ask if it was possible to visit a containership. Only Evergreen responded in a positive way and just a few weeks later I climbed up the gangway of the 4.229 TEU “Ever Renown” at the ECT Home terminal in Rotterdam. At that time the average size for the Asia-Europe trade.
During my period at the Shipping- and Transport College, I followed internships within forwarding and shipping companies, where after I seamlessly rolled into the business. I gained a valuable wide experience within the various disciplines of forwarding, transport, shipping and chartering and kept my knowledge updated with various masterclasses and other courses.
During the years I received quite a lot of inquiries for shipping via my private website, where I used to publish my containership photo’s. Often people suggested me to start my own business using all the passion I have for shipping. Encouraged by many examples how not to handle shipments, I have finally decided to establish my own business and provide a high quality for our customers.
