Nedlloyd Lines
(Nedlloyd Lijnen)

Netherlands

*

Formed after WW2, Nedlloyd Lines was initially a partnership of several Dutch shipping companies, comprising among others Nederland Line, Royal Rotterdam Lloyd and VNS - United Netherlands Navigation Co.. In 1970, those companies were merged, together with KJCPL - Royal Interocean Lines (which continued operating under its own name for a while) and later also KNSM - Royal Netherlands Steamship Co. The holding company became Koninklijke Scheepvaart Unie (from 1977 Koninklijke Nedlloyd Groep), but traded as Nedlloyd Lines. Another merger of Nedlloyd and P&O Containers created P&O Nedlloyd in 1996, which in turn was acquired by A.P. Moller-Maersk Group of Denmark in 2005 and merged with Maersk Sealand to become simply Maersk Line in 2006 - the world's largest container shipping company.
