Providing high-quality services with best in class efficiency and consistency can result in a better understanding of an organization in the market. Jon Arnup and the founding team members were all previously working for the large global port operators of this world, in various line manager, regional and corporate head office positions. “Having worked with a number of port-related consultants and equipment manufacturers and realizing that very few – if any – had lived, worked and survived inside a terminal – we felt that in 2016 it was time to start Trent and offer a suite of services and solutions to the port industry – wherever they were located in the world,” says, Jon Arnup, Founder & CEO of the company.

Trent occupies a unique position in a market; it is an internationally seasoned and populated by a culturally groomed team of port professionals who have collectively spent more than 100 years of their lives operation and managing within the container terminal itself for some of the world’s largest port operators.

The services provided by the company delivers the value and quality the customers need to thrive, combining unparalleled port experience with an authentic dedication to developing long-term partnerships that help decision-makers get things done, and get things done right.
