History of T.Ward Shipping

t.ward shipping ltd was formed in the early 20th century but have been located at our Edinburgh office since the 1970’s as uk shipping agents covering east coast and west coast Scottish ports - please see ports we cover.


In recent years we have developed the forwarding side of our business, offering Scottish and UK exporters and importers a much more personalised service when it comes to the shipping, documentation and customs formalities involved in moving goods all over the world.

Comprehensive, personalised service to importers and exporters

In a world full of multinational companies, offering a more comprehensive and personalised service is our biggest strength. We are also active members of BIFA the UK trade body for UK freight forwarders.


Working independently gives us the freedom to tailor our services opening up a wider choice for customers and giving them much more flexibility to accommodate specific requirements; while also allowing us to be competitively priced and still maintain the strong level of personalized customer service our clients expect - to go above and beyond!
