CRANFORD, N.J., Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- New job opportunities have arrived in Cranford. International shipping company Somerset Marine Lines (SML), has moved its office to the New Jersey town, which is a strategic hub for logistics companies given its proximity to Newark Liberty International Airport and both the New Jersey Ports. Founded in 2000, SML was acquired last year by Magnate Worldwide, a premium asset-light transportation and logistics provider. Since the acquisition, SML has doubled its revenue and profits, creating an opportunity to expand its team.
"Our new location will have access to a larger talent pool, and allow SML to further achieve its growth strategy," said Thomas Gilgen, president of Magnate Worldwide's International Division. In addition to its proximity to important ports, which grants the SML team easy access to shipments coming through customs, the location of the new, modern office is directly off the parkway. This creates an attractive commute for the sales and customer care representatives that SML plans to hire.
SML attributes its recent growth to shrewd decisions to expand its sales force and implement Cargowise One, a supply chain software that has created efficiencies in the customer service process. With the new office location, SML is poised for continued success.
"I anticipate that in the next six to twelve months, we'll see significant growth," said Gilgen.
