Island Ship Center was started by Fahim in 2006 on Baseline Road as an extension of the FedEx Authorized Shipping arm of his original business, Creative Leather Concepts.
In 2008, Fahim moved to the current location on Whitehaven Road.
Based on customer demand, office services were added to Island Ship Center including fax, copy, color copy and laminating services.
To provide a complete offering of shipping services, UPS and USPS shipping services were added. In 2013, Fahim’s wife, Seema, joined the business full time and has helped him grow the brand fully to become the #SpaOfShipping and a destination for independent shipping store owners across the country, providing more than 50 services in house.
In 2013, Fahim’s wife Seema joined the business full time and ever since then, the two of them have been making the mundane extraordinary, now providing over 60 services under one roof.
In 2016, a major addition was undertaken to add a new 24 hour Business Center and additional space for a growing Island Ship Center.
In 2017, Seema expanded the entire retail section with Seema’s Boutique, right inside Island Ship Center. Every year, on Small Business Saturday (the Saturday after Thanksgiving), Seema throws an annual purse party. It’s truly a memorable event.

In 2018, Fahim and Seema added eCommerce fulfillment to their already growing list of services.
