About Us

Coastal Shipping Limited operates a fleet of oil tankers with the primary mission to provide fuel supply service to the Canadian Arctic and Labrador Coastal Ports. The Company was established in 1973 to provide fuel deliveries to coastal Newfoundland and Labrador communities. The Company has since expanded to include service to the Canadian Arctic and are also now operating globally with the tankers Kivalliq W, Kitikmeot W, Qikiqtaaluk W and Tuvaq W.

Coastal Shipping Limited has several years experience operating in remote areas often in less than ideal weather and ice conditions. The window of opportunity to deliver fuel to these locations is short and we look forward to the challenge. We take pride in our service to those communities that are so dependent on this vital link. In addition to the supply of fuel to Northern communities Coastal Shipping Limited has ships available for charter work. Please view the Contacts page for info on how to reach us.​
