MiniMax Forwarders and Island Shippers have announced an agreement whereby MiniMax will integrate Island Shippers’ customer list with its own to offer sea and air shipping service to Bermuda.

The agreement, a statement from the two companies said, takes immediate effect. Island Shippers will no longer provide small package services.

The Queen Group, owner of Island Shippers, will now exit client-facing shipping services to focus on its other lines of business, particularly Atlantic Caregiving Ltd and consulting services, the statement said.

An Island Shippers spokesman said: “Beginning in 2017, Island Shippers and MiniMax have been building a relationship in which we have worked to provide affordable shipping services to our customers by sharing containers and achieving efficiencies through automation, including using Island Shippers’ custom-built Doblonstar shipping software.

“We have now reached a point where it makes sense for the services to operate under one brand and we expect that this will lead to even better service for all of our customers.”

MiniMax owner Casey Burgess said: “We are pleased to be integrating Island Shippers’ clients to our customer base and look forward to providing them with seamless and affordable shipping services for everything from small packages to full container loads, as well as specialty shipping services.”

MiniMax offers a wide range of transport and logistics services including general trucking, home and office moves, relocations, Customs clearance and air and sea freight services, the statement said.
