Ile-de-France Shipping S.A. (IDF Shipping) was founded in 501 AGS (585 AS) and is now the leading shipping company in Gallic space, comprising over 55 percent of the civilian space transportation market. The Crown has a significant stake in IDF operations, owning over 40 percent of the company's stock. The government prefers not to interfere in IDF operations unless necessary, but the situation has been changing since the start of the Second Gallic War when government representatives on the board of IDF started to lobby for increased participation of IDF with supplying the Navy. Today, the company's ships are frequently seen providing supplies for the rear outposts of the Sirius invasion fleet.



Ile-de-France Shipping was founded less than two years after Solar, but the companies are in no way related to each other. The only similarity is that both companies started operating in the complicated period of the First Gallic War, when old shipping companies withdrew from the war zone and the government desperately needed new shippers to take their place. Unlike Solar, IDF chose the path of close co-operation with the Crown, which gave the company a huge head start. After the war, IDF started purchasing assets of competing companies and was able to complete several aggressive takeovers. However, IDF never achieved monopoly status within the space transportation market, unlike GMS that was able to practically monopolize space mining.



IDF Shipping is known to be one of the closest partners of EFL Oil & Machinery. IDF extensively participated in building the system of Gallic jump gates and trade lanes. Constructing the rapid space transportation systems was undertaken by EFL using technology stolen from Sirius' nations by the Junkers. IDF participated in the construction works and provided transport for huge lane and gate parts that EFL developed and built in its shipyards.



Land headquarters of IDF are located at New Paris, and Sarcelles Shipping Facility is considered the space headquarters.
