Sealink

United Kingdom

The shipping interests of British Rail were organized in a new entity in 1969 - British Rail Shipping & International Services Division.
It used the marketing name Sealink from 1970. Eventually, French, Belgian and Dutch cross-Channel ferries also operated under the Sealink brand.
