MMS uses steel as base cargo to charter the ships it operates, completing the same with other cargoes, such as forest products, machineries, vehicles and project cargoes. 95% of steel shipping is represented by Italian exports. Furthermore, MMS takes care of the discharging and distribution activities of cargoes in the US and the UK for the main Italian producers – discharging, storage and delivery by truck, rail or barge. MMS fulfils the export of cargoes for five major customers (steel producers) as well as for smaller producers who tend to outsource the shipping activities out of the production line.Since a few years MMS has widened the range of the services offered with a Joint Venture called Marine Global Services, together with the company from Brescia, ‘Magli', taking care of the multimodal transport of steels.

MMS is agent in Italy for Gearbulk, one of the biggest world carriers of forest products and offers a range of services and logistics solutions both for raw materials and for finished products of the forest industry.
