Shipping live lobster worldwide is a global business that focuses on a perishable product. Live lobster never stops, so neither do we. Our facility is open 24 hours a day and our customers call during their business hours — no matter which timezone they’re in.

Several times a year, we have the good fortune to participate in seafood industry trade shows and Maine- or USA-sponsored trade missions. As a company, we prioritize this investment to have the opportunity to do business face-to-face with our customers. We also believe that learning about the culture, tradition, and food trends in the various regions where we do business is incredibly important. We like to understand how lobster is consumed throughout the world, learn about holidays or events that would force a peak in demand in certain regions or tighten the availability of services from perishable air freight capacity or international banking. Knowing our customers’ needs and how live lobster fits into their portfolio is incredibly important to us.
