In partnership with Sulivan Shipping
In partnership with Sulivan Shipping in Stanley we have been providing freight services to and from the Falkland Islands. We are currently able to offer an air/sea service tailored to connect with the regular sailings of the MV Scout from Montevideo, Uruguay to Stanley. There is also sea freight container services via both SAAS via the MV Scout and military via Marchwood and access to LCL services, if required.
We are able to provide connections throughout the archipelago from our base in the capital, as well as access to the occasional connections to South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. Details of the next available services can be found below, or feel free to call us with any enquiries you may have.
Unfortunately we are currently unable to transport live animals on these services, although we are able to move certain Restricted Articles with prior clearance.

Pigs to the Falklands (2012)
There can’t be many companies that have flown live pigs from Cambridge in the UK to the Falkland Islands. The reason? To replenish the gene pool. According to Falkland farmer Andrez Short “They are settling in well” even if they were delayed by a day or two due to snowstorms.
