The Fleets

Moller & Co.

Founded in 1882 in Shanghai by Nils Moller who was a Swedish captain. Since Swedish nationals living overseas were not allowed to fly the Swedish flag, he registered his ships under the British flag.
In 1903 the company was divided between Nils Moller who carried on the commission business and his sons, Eric and his brother who carried on the shipping side which was reorganised as Moller Bros. and operated sailing ships. In 1907 Mollers sold their last sailing ship and purchased their first steamer. In 1910 the brothers' partnership was dissolved and the firm taken over by Eric Moller as sole proprieter under the name Moller & Co. Heavy losses were sustained in WWII with 12 ships lost to enemy action, 2 seized by Japan and lost under the Japanese flag and one wrecked.
In 1946 Moller took over the management of Alpha South African SS Co. and their fleet and the Lancashire Shipping Co. The company transferred it's operations from Shanghai to Hong Kong in 1953 and abandoned the China coast trade. Several subsidiary companies were set up - Grosvenor Shipping Co., London, Red Anchor Line, Hong Kong and Redfern Shipping Co., Bermuda. The group withdrew from shipping in 1981
