Finally a shipping service that can tell a beverage from a bonsai
At Safmarine we know that shipping requirements differ from commodity to commodity, just as they do from customer to customer.
Which is why we are proud to introduce CommCare, the first in a range of specialist container and breakbulk shipping services aimed at using our more than 100 years experience in commodity shipping to our customer's benefit.
CommCare is more than a specialist service developed to serve the needs of customers involved in the shipment of coffee and cocoa. The service is extended to include the commodities tea, tobacco, cotton and rubber.
It's a service with a focus on safety, security and reliability; a service our customers can trust, provided by people they personally know and can trust. It's Safmarine's people - and their expertise - which sets us apart from other shipping lines. The dedicated men and women who make up Safmarine's CommCare team in Antwerp and the rest of the world have many years experience in commodity shipping. They are experts in their particular field; know and understand the challenges of commodity shipping and make it their business to know as much about a commodity, as they do about the business of shipping.
