Business freight

Business freight is carried for and on behalf of a business and will typically entail larger quantities and larger items. The majority of business freight is palletised.

Business freight may be acting as a link in a supply chain or a courier network and so needs to integrate with the other services making up that chain.

A business freight account is more likely to be making regular shipments, necessary to the running of that business.

Private freight

A private freight account makes it easier for an individual to make occasional shipments or even a one off shipment.

Business references are not needed to open a private account and a small deposit is taken.

Non-permanent residents or temporary users of the Isles of Scilly Freight service can find a private account particularly convenient.
