Founded in 819 A.S. by former employees of the Interspace Commerce, Liberty Trade Shipping is a private company specialized in providing high quality shipping services from Liberty to Bretonia and Kusari. Its goals are to become a reliable partner in the market dominated by competitors and to extend influence of the Republic of Liberty, through diplomatic ways, in all Sirius systems.
- To become a main competitor on the shipping services market.
- To extend influence of the company, through diplomatic ways, in all Sirius systems.
- To keep a neutral position in armed conflicts between all houses.
- To build trade centers in the main houses from Sirius.
- To sign profitable contracts with the biggest lawful trade corporations.
Although Liberty Trade Shipping was founded officially in May 819 A.S., the history of this company began earlier, when Rick Tenda, a 22-year-old young man, has decided to resign from Interspace Commerce corporation, after his parents died in an accident. Becoming very rich, as result of the exceptional financial situation of his family, Rick tried to start his own bussiness, together with two brothers, Mark and Joe. They succeed to create a small private company, named Liberty Trade and Supply. But due to lack of experience, their initiative has failed. Few months later, the father of those two brothers, David, also an employee of Interspace Commerce, being dissatisfied by the policy of this corporation, has decided to resign and joined to these young mens, in their attempt to form a new shipping company. And thus was born the Liberty Trade Shipping corporation, with Rick Tenda as Vice President and David Leroy as President.
Knowing that to become a competitive company on the shipping market is necessary to have a vast transportation division, they bought many transport ships and decided to begin first businesses in Kusari space, trying to take advantage of the poor relationship between Interspace Commerce and local authorities from this house. Seen as a foreign competitor, arrival of Liberty Trade Shipping in this space was not greeted enthusiastically by other much bigger corporations. However, in a few weeks, Liberty Trade Shipping, with the consistent financial support from Rick Tenda, has succeeded to sign some contracts with local companies, like Kishiro Technologies or Samura Heavy Industries, to purchase from a group of freelancers, known as Coalition of Free Traders, a private station, named Muroto Trade Center, wich has become also the headquarter of Liberty Trade Shipping and to promote the company name by creating their own Media Center.
Beginning was a tough one. But having more employees, more ships and more influence, David Leroy considered that it was the proper time for the beginning of a intense campaign, in order to extend the operations area of his company in other houses. In this regard, he started negotiations to receive approval from Bretonian local authorities for building a new trade center in New London system. In the meantime, this company was forced to cope with different obstacles in its way to ascension: repeated attacks from terrorists groups like the Xenos in Liberty or the Artisan Farmers Alliance in Kusari, difficulties due to relationship with Interspace Commerce and influences of this corporation or solving of some events occurring in the Honshu system, after a treaty has been signed by Kusari Naval Forces and Rheinland Military, initially considered a potential danger for the Liberty Trade Shipping, and it all culminated with sudden disappearance of Rick Tenda at the end of June 819 A.S., while he was in a business travel in Nagano system. Left alone in the lead of this company, David had a psychotic break, two days later, when Mark Leroy ran with over two billions of credits from the funds of Liberty Trade Shipping.
Being betrayed by one of his own sons and without his best friend, David was very close to give up. Two full weeks he tried to find a way for solving of this situation. He was also tempted to sell Muroto Trade Center and to dissolve this company. But in a night, he had a dream about future... A future where Liberty Trade Shipping is seen as one of the biggest shipping company from Liberty, where all lawful traders are protected by global treaties signed by the most important corporations from all Sirius, where civilians have a different status and are not involved in conflicts between the military forces from all houses and where... the traders rights, foreigns or not, are respected everywhere. Remaining only with a few friends which have trust in his dream, David Leroy, has decided to continue his fight for the success of this company. And so... it seems that the true history of Liberty Trade Shipping, is written nowadays.
However, very recently, due to the unexplained disappearance of the the CEO, David Leroy, the Vice President, Nicolas Carter, the Trade & Logistics Manager, Brian Ford, and the Director of Public relations, Armund Pagasi, the Chief Security Officer, Francois DeVersailles, has decided to take temporary full control of the company until the other directors or the CEO come back. He stepped up as temporary CEO of the company on the September 5th, 819 A.S. Currently he is the only board member active, and is trying to keep Liberty Trade Shipping alive until the return of the others.
