Why Ship with us?
When you choose to do business with Fairtransport Shipping Company, you are not just moving your cargo; you are investing in the idea of clean shipping and you are investing in the future and yourself.
Your product is put in the spotlight – centre stage – in the cargo hold of the world’s only engineless cargo sailing fleet. You will be working with by far the most talked about alternative method of shipping world-wide. Onboard the Tres Hombres and Nordlys, your product is promoted internationally through dockside events, tastings and at festival; not to mention sharing in the fame during radio, newspaper and television interviews.
Fairtransport offers another benefit that no other shipping company can; a chance to load your cargo by hand alongside the crew, to work the sails and take the helm as you transport your unique product into your destination harbour.
While face-to-face interaction and “handshake deals” are at the heart of our business, Fairtransport has the crucial ability to close deals with multi-national corporations and often works with the best and highest respected producers and merchants in the world. Move Your Cargo Today.

Freight prices are based on “ton/mile” units. There is an additional standard flat operating fee. This unit is a sum of how many tons of cargo are to be moved, and how many nautical miles that weight will travel. The ton/mile fee works on a scale of reduction by volume.
Our ships have no engine, thus do not depend on predicting and calculating fuel costs as do other shipping companies. Thus, our team can provide our customers with an immediate quotation. If you know exactly how much you want to transport and the ports of lading and discharge, it may be possible for us to give you a quotation straightaway.
