The Fleets

Navigazione Libera Triestina

The company was registered in 1906 at Trieste, then part of Austria-Hungary and operated cargo services world wide. In 1918 Trieste became a part of Italy and the fleet transferred to the Italian flag. From 1921 passenger services to New York were instituted and in 1927 a Genoa - Naples - Gulf of Mexico service started. In 1937 the fleet was split between Italia and Lloyd Triestino and disappeared as a seperate concern.
