Yet, Mac-Nels remains a privately owned family business.
Historically Mac-Nels’ corporate profile has been dedicated to the wholesale market whereby facilitating the shipping need of other freight forwarders and removalist companies, especially in the area of consolidated part container loads (LCLs).
The consolidation services meant a heavy demand has been required to develop a strong network of like-minded agents and service providers worldwide.
This in turn has developed a strong two-way trade between Mac-Nels and agents worldwide.
Mac-Nels through their corporate volumes with shipping lines have been able to negotiate volume-based rate agreements resulting in very competitive pricing being extended to our customer base.
Mac-Nels Phuket in particular have been able to use this corporate buying power to offer lower shipping rates to Phuket based clients… A significant bonus!
Mac-Nels Shipping Phuket is a relatively new identity but it comes with a wealth of local experience backed up by the corporate strength of the organisation.
Whilst corporately Mac-Nels have a profile focused at wholesale, we in Phuket are 100% dedicated to the retail sector of business, whether it be commercial of personal shipments.
The advantage of course is Phuket’s ability to extend wholesale charges through all levels of the freight and transport chain.
