It all started back in the 1960’s; this is when John Cosmatos was first employed as a boarding officer by a local shipping agency.
It took him six years to gain essential knowledge and get hooked for life with this intriguing and exciting profession.
In 1972, he “heaved up the anchor” and for the first time he “sailed his own ship” by establishing his first shipping agency in Thessaloniki.
This very first sailing continues till the present day with the same freshness, hanger for creativity, improvement and service.
Today, the Cosmatos Group of companies has grown to include four sister companies. Each one offers services which help our clients facilitate all their shipping, forwarding and logistical needs within the trusted hands of the established and respected Cosmatos Group.
