Marine Operations

All in a day's work

MLS' long history in the servicing of ships remains at the core of its operations today.

The MLS management team is built on a foundation of several decades of collective experience in servicing military contracts, known to be the most demanding in terms of their complexity and time-sensitive nature. Those standards have been applied, without compromise, to the commercial sector to ensure all MLS customers reap the benefit of their experience.

Regardless of ship size, type or registry, MLS provides 'round the clock support to meet virtually all requirements with the results often exceeding the expectations of the world's most demanding customers.

Having serviced tens of thousands of ships in over 120 ports around the world, including some of the most challenging circumstances, MLS provides a truly global service but always exercises the same exacting standards, whatever the service requirement.
