The NEAS group (NEAS Inc., Nunavik Eastern Arctic Shipping and Nunavut Eastern Arctic Shipping) is a marine lifeline of the Arctic communities across Nunavik and Nunavut, covering a staggering marine geographic area comprising the Hudson Bay, Ungava Bay, and Arctic communities across the expanse of the Northwest Passage.

NEAS is a partnership between Makivik and Transport Nanuk Inc., a company which provides maritime transportation expertise. In a region with no highway or railway network, marine transportation is vital. Necessities such as food, fuel and building materials are carried on the decks and holds of the NEAS vessels during the summer and autumn re-supplying every northern community and outpost camp or mining operation. NEAS was created to offer marine transportation services using our skills and experience in order to contribute positively to the economic growth of the north and provide benefits to Nunavik and Nunavut Inuit.
