GILLSHIP NAVIGATION was founded in 1981 in recognition of the rapidly changing role of the international freight forwarder in the transportation marketplace.

With experience in international transportation since 1947, GILLESPIE-MUNRO INC. had developed a keen awareness of the needs and requirements of both shippers and forwarders for the movement of LCL shipments by a competent and qualified firm, offering “carrier” service, with “carrier” documentation. The decision to launch the Gillship Navigation brand was in response to those needs.

Since its founding over 25 years ago, Gillship Navigation has matured to be a major independent NVOCC offering both LCL and FCL services to the marine transport marketplace. Covering eighteen (18) direct weekly export services and upwards of five hundred (500) indirect destinations, and twenty (20) direct weekly import services, Gillship continues to grow as a significant force in Canadian marine logistics.

Gillship Navigation has partnered with many agents overseas who themselves are industry leaders in their respective countries. Over the years these relationships have developed into a worldwide agency network of working partners dedicated to offering competitive services to the international marketplace. With a focus on reliable, efficient, customer driven transportation services, this network enables us to offer complete door to door services tailored to the needs of our clients.
