FIS dispatches cargoon the Ministry of Defence vessels, which travel to and from the UK at regular 5 week intervals throughout the year. For larger consignments FIS would be happy to arrange dedicated charter vessels.
Depending on your needs we can ship vehicles and plant, or offer entire 20’ and 40’ containers for your sole use. We can also arrange container rental and delivery to your loading point in the UK or transhipment from any International port to vessels departing every five weeks from Marchwood in Hampshire.
For smaller consignments we offer a consolidation service (“groupage”) where individual items are separately and securely stowed in a general cargo container. This containerisation and consolidation service is operated by Falkland Island Shipping’s exclusive specialist consolidator, AMG, from their conveniently located base at North Weald in Essex (5 miles from the M25).
