Scotland’s leading freight and logistics firm is celebrating its one millionth delivery of the year – delivering on the potential of its recent growth strategies.

Streamline Shipping Group dropped off the landmark shipment to longtime client Birsay Farmers in Orkney – marking the first time the firm has reached the milestone within a calendar year.

The impressive delivery follows the opening of the company’s new freight terminal in Aberdeen in late 2021, significantly increasing its workforce and capacity in the process.

Vanessa Robertson, Streamline Shipping Group’s Orkney general manager, said: “We launched our first freight service to Orkney in 1987, so to be celebrating this landmark one millionth delivery with one of our longest standing clients on the island feels fantastic.

“Across all our depots and all our services, we’re committed to delivering an integrated freight and logistics service that stands out from the crowd. Whether facilitating customs declarations for overseas exports, or hand delivering parcels to remote communities in Orkney and Shetland, we’re passionate about ensuring our clients’ cargo gets where it needs to be on time and in perfect condition.

“Reaching this milestone delivery is a huge testament to the work of our teams across the country and around the world – and we’re incredibly excited to see what the future will bring.”

Earlier this year, the delivery firm also became the first to introduce EVs to its delivery fleet in Orkney, providing emission-free last mile deliveries to the local community.
