Established in 1971, Island Carriers is a small and friendly team. We provide reliable and efficient range of haulage services.

Island Carriers is freight haulage company based on St. Mary’s on the Isles of Scilly. Working for and being part of a small community means there is a greater need to diversify and we tackle many jobs your standard hauliers would not consider. Our freight may range from telegraph poles, concrete blocks, tonne bags down to a tin of beans for the local shop. With over 45 years of experience the Island Carriers team is equipped to deal with any situation presented.
