Why Neptune?

Neptune Shipping Agency Ltd. was incorporated in 1953, and we are proud of the vast amount of knowledge and experience we have gained in international freight.

In 1969 we began to handle our first volume shipments of full containers to and from the US. Now we have become a major player in two key areas:

1 Shipping of containerized cargo throughout the world, both full containers (FCL) and less than full loads (LCL). And Customs clearance of non EU consignments.

2 European Trailer groupage operations with over 100 trailers arriving and departing the UK bound for most of the major European cities each week.
