Nunavik Eastern Arctic Shipping Inc. was established in 2011. It is majority owned by Makivvik. The objective is to deliver superior sealift for the 14 Nunavik communities and to capitalize on emerging opportunities from the Government of Quebec’s Plan Nord. Nunavik Eastern Arctic Shipping Inc. is committed to significantly increasing NEAS business across Nunavik.

NEAS Inc. is the operating company and is owned jointly by Makivvik and Transport Nanuk Inc., a joint-venture between Logistec Corporation and The North West Company.

At NEAS, our mission is to reliably deliver superior marine resupply and related cargo services with modern vessels, and highly skilled and professional employees committed to providing a better sealift experience for customers across Canada’s Eastern and Western Arctic.

NEAS is the right choice for your northern cargo in terms of transportation technology, and reduced delivery points. With our innovative cargo service centre, NEAS provides a single location for all your cargo needs.

As Arctic pioneers our commitment to excellence in service extends across all levels of our operation – from management to deckhands. NEAS is a reliable economic link between Canada’s Arctic and the world.

The NEAS system of containerization has revolutionized the movement of goods, increased safety and efficiency, and reduced environmental impacts. NEAS offers loading services for 20ft containers. We also offer the largest cargo lift capacity available.

NEAS, through the services of the NEAS Cargo Service Centre, offers packaging and container services. This includes crating, bundling, strapping, palletizing, bagging, marking, weighing and/or marshalling. Such packaging ensures safe transport of your cargo.

NEAS generates meaningful participation for local Inuit in the essential marine transportation business, including local training, employment, job promotion as well as vital ownership opportunities.
