The Engles Line was formed in Antwerp in 1859 and operated a fleet of sailing ships, mostly to South America. The company purchased it's first steamship in 1870 and initially put it on the India service, before making New York voyages in 1871. They seriously entered the North Atlantic passenger trade in 1878 and in 1879 commenced joint services with Daniel Steimann under the description of the White Cross Line. Passenger activities ceased in 1884 and in 1888 the joint agreement expired. Engels continued cargo operations until 1894 when their last ship disappeared at sea.
