Who We Are
The word “Celtic” (from the Greek, keltoi) actually refers to the dominant pre-Christian culture of Europe north of the Mediterranean, although most often associated with Ireland. The Celts were immigrants who molded the Irish nation. Around 600 AD, two Celtic branches spread to the British Isles – the Brythoni (in Britain) and the Gaels (in Ireland) – importing oats and iron objects. Irish Celts were seafarers (expanding from the west coast of Ireland to areas as far as Greenland / Iceland and possibly Nova Scotia, Canada, and farmers.
The Celtic Group is a network of companies that began with the founding of Celtic Marine Corporation in July 1985. At the time Celtic was founded, the concept of third-party logistics providers (known today as 3PLs) was almost unknown in the transportation industry.
