About The Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight is located just off the south coast of England. Despite having a resident population of approximately 140,000 and being on average only 2-4 miles from the mainland county of Hampshire, there has never been a fixed link. The Isle of Wight is an English county in its own right and the administrative (and geographical) centre is Newport. However, the gateway ports for freight traffic are Fishbourne, East Cowes and Yarmouth.
Fishbourne is connected with Portsmouth via a frequent service operated by Wightlink. Red Funnel Ferries operates the slightly longer crossing between East Cowes and Southampton whilst the shortest crossing is between Yarmouth & Lymington, also operated by Wightlink.
Whichever route, AferryFreight can offer you competitive rates and deal with all major UK and European Ferry operators.

Island roads are well signposted and many have outstanding views. Freight drivers be warned, a number of main roads are narrow.
