Established in 1842, leading logistics and maritime service provider Cory Brothers (Cory) has seen solid, continuous growth throughout its evolution. Based on a foundation of shipping and customer service expertise and experience developed across three centuries, Cory offers a seamless solution for every transportation need.
As Cory Group Managing Director Peter Wilson explains, the company can be described as “a market-leading UK and global service provider offering port agency, hub services, freight forwarding and liner representation.”
These services stem from years of international knowledge and experience, and are flexible, meaning that customers can benefit from solutions tailored to their own individual budget and requirements. Peter, However, also credits the company’s staff as the cornerstone of Cory’s success. The leadership team works hard to ensure staff feel engaged, entrusted and capable of fulfilling their roles. He himself entered the business 22 years ago as a trainee, and has undertaken almost every role from trainee to MD, providing a unique insight: “My experience allows me to truly understand what they all do and the issues they face,” he said. Under Peter and his team’s trusted supervision, Cory is primed for further success. “We have plenty of plans for Cory – growth through internal development and possible acquisition is, of course, key to all business,” he said.
This approach is reflected in Peter’s own plans for the ongoing leadership of what has become somewhat of a British institution in the logistics sector: “I am very fortunate to have had the most amazing opportunities over the last 22 years. My ambition for Cory is to leave it in the strongest place possible but also find the candidates in this business who can follow in my footsteps, not because I am anything special but because it’s the right thing to do. The future is looking very bright for Cory.”
