IML Marine Management Ltd was incorporated in 1989 and conducted its first business as line operators with a tramp liner service to the Eastern Mediterranean. Things changed, however, when the first Gulf War created a demand for more shipping services and IML took the opportunity to start a roro service to the Arabian Gulf. The company began acting as shipping and forwarding agents, specialising in truck, plant and construction equipment shipping - the speciality that IML has since become renowned for.
Key company strengths:
- In depth knowledge of construction equipment
- Finding the right shipping solution - from vessel chartering, to roro to flat rack
- Personal service and individual attention to clients' needs
The roro service to the Arabian Gulf generates substantial business for IML and, with director Jonathon Turner having made 3 or 4 trips over there every year for the last 15 years, his accumulated, in-depth knowledge of the region lends invaluable support and strength to the quality of service IML can offer its clients. The Middle East and East Africa shipping routes are the main focus for IML's services but the company does in fact have a global operation and is happy to quote for freight forwarding anywhere in the world.
