About Us

Centauri Transport was founded to satisfy the overwhelming need for reliable ocean shipping service to the Bahamas and is focused on the Family Islands. Based in Miami, Florida, Centauri Transport's team of logistics and transportation industry veterans came together with a common goal - provide dependable, reliable ocean shipping services with "straight- talk" communications to the dynamic economies of the Bahamas' Family Islands.

Each of the Outer Islands, known more commonly as the Family Islands is home to many generations of a strong and proud tradition of independence. As the tourism industry has enhanced the quality of life throughout the Bahamas, the demand for quality household goods, food supplies, and even luxury items has grown. As the local community demand on each island warrants quality service and attention to detail, the charm of the Family Islands continues to attract more and more tourism which results in even greater demand for dependable shipping services. Building materials and supplies, supporting everything from home repairs and newly built, single family homes to large scale resorts, not to mention the basic necessities of food and clothing, all call for reliable ocean shipping service. It is the jobs created by this development and the quality of life in each home that calls for a better shipping service and Centauri Transport is committed to providing transparent, quality transportation services, doing all we can to meet the demands in Eleuthera, Abaco, Exuma, Bimini, the Berry Islands and all of the Family Islands.

Centauri Transport provides dedicated scheduled routes, charter options, and the flexibility required to meet the logistical needs of the most complex projects. We operate ocean vessels, strategically sourced to suit the challenging navigation of shallow waters, common to the outer islands while also providing the capacity to transport large volumes of all cargo types - bulk project cargo, dry and refrigerated containerized cargo, heavy equipment and vehicles.

The vast majority of the various supplies in demand come from the US and most commonly, South Florida. Centauri Transport's highly skilled team delivers white glove service from the time your cargo is received at our private, 3-acre shipping terminal on the Miami River until your cargo is delivered safely to its destination. Centauri Transport is making shipping more reliable and efficient than ever before, providing our clients with confidence and peace of mind.

Centauri Transport is committed to serving the Family Islands, proving to be not only a good service provider, with a passion for our work but a true partner to each community we serve.
