North West Chartering

– a North Atlantic specialist

North West Chartering became part of Posta, The Faroese Postal Service, in June 2019. North West Chartering was founded in year 2000 and handles all kind of vessels to and from the Faroe Islands. Additionally, we also handle a large portion of the imports to Iceland and Greenland every week, which is why we have such a comprehensive knowledge about all the unique challenges of transporting goods around the North Atlantic region.


Our logistics infrastructure and industry insight make us the regional leader in the transport of all types of goods to and from the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland and Denmark.

To help ensure that our customers could receive even better service, we opened a branch in Denmark. Now, we can take full responsibility for the transport of your goods earlier in the logistics transport chain. With our branch offices in Kolding and in Copenhagen, we can offer you transport services from start to finish – services we know you will come to appreciate and value.

Posta has roots dating back to the early 1870s. Throughout our long history, we have built up a solid logistics infrastructure and an extensive industry network with links to many key partners. This enables us to arrange the transport of your goods in the most efficient, safe and affordable way possible.

In the Faroes, we are also the agent for DHL Express, which connects us to their global transport network and all the potential benefits such a network offers.
