Furness Scheepvaart en Agentuur Maatschappij
When the Neptune Line with it's Rotterdam - Baltimore service was purchased in 1906 by Furness, it was decided to open an office in Rotterdam, the title being Furness & Nephews. In 1912 this was changed to a Dutch registered company and named Furness Scheepvaart en Agentuur Maatschappij N.V. The ships were employed on the India and Indonesian services and tramping. In 1916 the Furness Dutch subsidiary was sold but continued as managers. By 1922 they managed four ships which became the Zuid-Hollandsche Stoomboot Maatschappij.
