Isles of Scilly Freight

We provide a regular and reliable shipping service year-round that carries a full range of freight, allowing islanders to conduct their business and live their lives without limitation. Gry Maritha, our dedicated freight ship, can be entrusted to carry anything from palletised cargo and large goods to the smallest and most fragile of packages. From perishables to aggregate, and gifts to vehicles, we cater for all freight needs, no matter the size or fragility. If you have any freight requirements or questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Private freight

Anything that is too large to be carried by hand on Scillonian III or Skybus can be entrusted to us to safely transport between the mainland and the islands. It could be anything from a surfboard to a car. Whatever it is, we know it’s precious to you, so it will be treated with the care it deserves.

Over 100 years of history

The history of any group of islands has always been inextricably linked to its ability to trade with the mainland. This is as true for the Isles of Scilly as it is for any other island community.

In 2020 the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group celebrated 100 years of service, providing essential transport links for both passengers and freight between the Isles of Scilly and the mainland.
