Providing the Strategic Sealift Service to the UK Ministry of Defence
Foreland was established in 2001 to build, commission and operate the Strategic Ro-Ro Service on behalf of the UK MOD. Foreland is wholly owned by The Hadley Group. Foreland is run by an independent, London based, management team.
The Hadley Shipping Group Ltd is one of the few remaining family controlled British shipping companies. The Company has navigated through often volatile and unpredictable markets with a legacy of prudent and responsible investment to prove credible growth and continued expansion.
Hadley Shipping has mainly been involved in the operation of bulk carriers with particular focus in the last twenty five years on the Panamax market. Latterly the Group has also invested in the Container market through the acquisition of two vessels, one of which remains in the fleet, and the RoRo market through Foreland Shipping Ltd, a special purpose vehicle to operate 4 Roll on Roll off ferries for the UK’s Ministry of Defence. The Company has also now re-entered the tanker sector, through the acquisition of a clean products carrier.
