Shipping News Feature
UK – Despite being one of the longest established names in the commercial maritime world John Good Shipping is still looking to the future, as evidenced by the opening of a new office in Liverpool to further expand its freight forwarding, ship agency and airfreight activities in the North West. It is less than two years since the company opened its new headquarters on the east coast at Hessle and the decision to make the latest move comes after a number of years considering a range of different opportunities, with John Good opening the doors of a newly refurbished 2,200 square foot office at Burlington House, Waterloo, just minutes from the Port of Liverpool.

Regular readers will know that Peel Ports has invested £400 million over the past three years constructing Liverpool2 to create one of Europe’s most advanced container terminals, capable of accommodating the world’s largest container vessels, and this has been an important driver for John Good, and the aspiration to restore some glory to one of the oldest of traditional ports is not lost on Seamus Jennings, Managing Director of John Good Shipping, who commented:

“The Port of Liverpool provides a fantastic gateway and a more competitive route to international markets for exporters based in the North and we want to be a part of this.”

The new office will be headed up by Barrie Taylor who is an extremely well established and respected freight expert in Liverpool and the North West. Barrie’s senior management team is made up of Keith Hughan, Steve Drury, Julie Godsall and Danielle Johnson, all of whom have many years’ experience in the shipping and freight forwarding industry. In addition, the team includes a number of experienced, operational staff with well-established roots in the Liverpool area.

John Good Shipping says it has built its business by ensuring an excellent and uncompromising set of services for almost 200 years and this latest move will further enhance the options offered to its customers. Full office contact details for the new premises are:
