1840 our founder, Israel Mason, started a small produce
stand in Providence, Rhode Island and grew his business into
a cold storage warehouse operation. This warehouse was an
early leader in the industry and laid the foundation for the
expertise and standards, both internationally and
domestically, for which this company is well known.
In 1964 the original cold storage company relocated part of
the operation to New Bedford, Massachusetts. At that time
Maritime entered the break-bulk reefer cargo market.
Under new ownership in 1992, the company took an aggressive
and positive direction in upgrading all of its facilities.
Maritime has since grown internally and has
acquired 2 cold stores located in Hartford, Connecticut in 1996 and Newark, Delaware in 2004.
We are a full service company providing the highest level of
service to our customers, as well as, offering
transportation services, warehousing, truck brokering,
vessel chartering, ship agency, freight forwarding and
