United Shipping Main Missions Repeatables

United Shipping (UNS for short) is a large interstellar corporation specializing in small, short-deadline deliveries. New pilots are often approached by United Shipping representatives to join their roster of independent couriers handling lucrative and occasionally dangerous shipments of high-value cargo. United Shipping employees wear blue-black uniforms.

You gain access to these missions by visiting the bar on a Federation planet. If you complete the first mission, you become a member of United Shipping. This gives you full access to missions, ships, and friendly treatment from other U.S. members. The chance of receiving free help if you're disabled or out of fuel is useful indeed for such an easy mission.

Most United Shipping missions involve travel to a distant system to pick up a shipment and delivery to yet another system. Nearly all missions have an expiration date; if the shipment is not completed before the deadline, the mission fails and the player is not paid. For this reason, most couriers use small, fast ships with minimal hyperjump delays.

Run-of-the-mill missions generally pay 10k credits, which is not considered sufficient by most veteran pilots unless they happen to be headed to the destination system anyway. Lucrative UNS missions (those worth 50k credits and above) are almost certain to attract the attention of pirates. Completing United Shipping missions will improve your relationship with every major faction, making them a good idea.


The main missions of the United Shipping side story focus on their desire to expand into other nations.

If the courier's getting paid 100k, what's the parent company making?


  • Samantha Virana: a UNS employee, recruiter and negotiator.
  • Sean Clarke: a UNS employee who orients new hires.
  • Jennifer Deally: a UNS employee who's working in the Auroran Empire much to her chagrin.
  • Tre'Nerida: a logistics adviser for the Tre'pira who presents the previously unfathomable idea of opening Polaris borders to a Federation corporation.


  • Greetings from United Shipping.
  • If you have any specialised items to send via a secure private courier, United Shipping is for you.
  • I'm actually on a delivery at the moment. I'm afraid I don't have time to talk.
  • United Shipping - Fast and Reliable.
  • I suppose I can take a few minutes out of my schedule; how can I help you?
  • Sorry I can't talk, I have a deadline to meet.
