The Fleets

Jardine, Matheson & Co.
China Coast Steam Nav. Co. / Indo-China Steam Nav. Co. / Yangtse S.N. Co.

The company was formed by two Scots, William Jardine and James Matheson in 1832 at Canton. The new firm prospered and by 1839 when the Chinese Government expelled foreign traders from Canton, it had achieved a dominant position in the opium trade. Regular runs were made between Canton and Calcutta and experimented with chartered steamships as early as 1830.
After the Opium Wars of 1840-42, the company moved to Hong Kong and also opened a branch at Shanghai to give access to trade in the Yangtze basin. After the early experiments in steam, the company became seriously involved in steamships in the mid-1850s on the Bengal - China trade. At about the same time, regular services were instituted on the China coast with occasional diversions to Japan.
In 1873 a subsidiary, the China Coast S.N Co. was formed to operate between Chinese ports and Japan. The Indo-China S.N. Co. was floated in 1881 and took over the fleet of the China Coast S.N. Co. and operated Chinese coastal services and to Singapore, Calcutta and Vladivostok. A new service from Hong Kong to Manila opened in 1885.
Trade flourished until the end of the second world war when the treaty of 1943 caused the loss of Yangtze River trade and trade between Chinese coastal ports.and the company diversified into the China - Australia trade.
At the end of 1955 passenger trade between the Far East, Straits and Bay of Bengal was abandoned and the same year, Auckland was added to the Australia service. However, increasing competition fron Indian and Japanese companies caused a decline in business and in 1974 ICSNC, London was liquidated. ICSNC, Hong Kong moved into the bulk shipping business in conjunction with the Wah Kwong group and also became involved in the Gearbulk pool of container shipping, but diversified into other industries.
