Compagnie Générale Transatlantique - French LineFrench Line CGT

Compagnie Générale Transatlantique (French Line) was founded in 1861. The company began sailing in 1862 from Havre to Mexico and in 1864 they added a services from Havre to New York. They also sailed to Canada via Plymouth, plied the Mediterranean and they had routes to the West Indies. The vessels averaged 8 days to New York.

In 1880 CGT took over Cie Valery Eugene Pereire and their Mediterranean service and 12 ships. They purchased Cie Franco-Tunisienne and their three ships in 1907. Cie Havraise Peninsulaire was acquired in 1915 and in 1916 they formed a subsidiary company Cie Générale d'Armements Maritimes (CGAM) in partnership with Cie Chargeurs Reunis. In 1917 Cie Navale de l'Oceanie was acquired with five ships. By 1919 they controlled Cie d'Orbigny, Societe Plisson, Societe des Vapeurs de Charge and Societe Marseillaise d'Armament Fritsche & Cie. They were also a major shareholder in the Fabre Line. In 1973 CGT merged with Cie des Messageries Maritimes to form Cie Generale Maritime.
