Compagnie de Navigation MixteC de N Mixte

Founded in Marseilles in 1850 with sailing craft equipped with auxiliary engines, hence the name of the company, to operate cargo and passenger services between Marseilles and North Africa. In 1853 operations were extended to South America, but this ceased in 1857 due to lack of trade. A service to the West Coast of Africa was inaugurated in 1894 but the company's main sphere of operations was the Mediterranean. In 1969 the Compagnie Générale Transméditerranéenne (CGTM), was formed from the merging of activities in the Mediterranean of the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique and the Compagnie de Navigation Mixte which disappeared as a seperate concern.
