Coast Line : Fleet List and History

de (Auteur)

Description - Formed on Merseyside in 1913, Coast Lines grew from a small fleet of sixteen coastal ships operating in the Irish Sea to the world's largest coastal fleet. At the time, over 4 million tons of shipping sailed from the Mersey on coastal voyages.

At its height, the company included Powell, Bacon & Hough Lines, British Channel Islands Shipping, Queenship Navigation, the Belfast Steamship Company, Burns & Laird Lines, the British & Irish Steam Packet, the North of Scotland, Orkney & Shetland Shipping Company, Tyne Tees Shipping and the Zillah Shipping Company.
Pioneering the coordination of road transport with coastal shipping from the 1950s onwards, in 1971 Coast Lines was eventually taken over by P&O, by which time the fleet had declined from 110 passenger and cargo vessels in 1955 to only twenty-five.

In this book, Ian Collard both examines the fascinating history of this famous Liverpool shipping company and provides a comprehensive fleet list.

DFDS 150

de (Auteur)

Description - In 2016, DFDS celebrates the 150th anniversary of its foundation. The company is among the oldest and most famous European shipping lines. Over the years, DFDS has made a very substantial contribution to the economy and culture of Denmark, Britain and Northern Europe.

Throughout its history, it has carried agricultural exports to the UK plus general cargo and passengers across a wide network of North European overnight routes. In addition, from the latter nineteenth onwards, DFDS was one of Denmark's pre-eminent international liner operators, its route network spanning from the Eastern Mediterranean to the Americas.

During the 1960s, it became a pioneer of roll-on, roll-off shipping methods, bringing far greater efficiency to short-sea shipping and, in the early-1970s, it was among the first shipping companies to develop shore-based logistics operations with large fleets of trucks and associated infrastructure.

Richly illustrated with a text of 140,000 words, illustrated with over 800 photographs, many never previously published, this book provides a unique insight into the development of a historically important company that continues to thrive in the twenty-first century.

Tor Line and the Battle of the North Sea

de (Auteur)

Description - Half a century ago, a global shipping revolution was underway as traditional labour-intensive and time-consuming methods of handling cargo were replaced by containerisation and the parallel development of roll-on, roll-off methods.

On the North Sea, long-established shipping companies were challenged by upstarts, embracing these new technologies. In 1966, Tor Line entered into an already crowded market in the trades between Sweden, the UK and the Netherlands.

Benefiting from effective tonnage and imaginative management, the company gradually gained market share and, during the 1970s, commissioned some of the most advanced passenger and freight ferries yet seen.

This book tells the story of liner and ferry services across the northern North Sea with a focus on Tor Line's development and its attempts to compete with a variety of rivals before being taken over by the Danish giant DFDS.
The book documents the 'inside story' of Tor Line and is lavishly illustrated with numerous previously unpublished illustrations.
