Travelling with us

At Strait Shipping, we're committed to offering drivers the very best possible experience. On board the vessels we have comfortable driver cabins, restrooms, shower facilities and hearty meals to ensure drivers arrive at their destination refreshed and ready for the rest of their journey.

Check-in facilities

Strait Shipping has dedicated freight check-in terminals in Picton and Wellington. Both terminals have warm cosy lounge areas for drivers which include the daily paper, magazines, complimentary tea and coffee plus bathrooms with shower facilities. There's even a TV and biccies to enjoy!

On board comfort


All driver cabins include their own ensuite, a comfy bed, pillow and duvet. Fresh towels are provided in each cabin along with complimentary driver toiletries including shampoo, body wash and soap.  Wake up calls are provided to all drivers half an hour before entering the respective ports (Wellington/Picton).


Drivers can expect to be served hearty three course meals designed to satisfy even the hungriest of truck driver appetites. They can also enjoy endless complimentary Tea, Coffee and Milo throughout the sailing.

Meals can be ordered by simply presenting a stamped meal voucher at the café. Our chefs can cater to special dietary requirements so if there is anything on the Table d'hote Menu during the sailing which you are unable to eat, please do not hesitate to let our crew know so they can organise an alternative.


Freeview is available on the Straitsman in the ‘Trucker’s Corner’. Both vessels also have free recent release movies available in the movie lounges and free Wi-Fi throughout the entire sailing.
