Skandinavien-Amerika Linien / Scandinavian-America Line
The Scandinavian-America Line was formed in 1898 as the Skandinavien-Amerika Linien, Copenhagen, when the old established Union Steam Ship Company took over the Thingvalla Line together with four of their ships. The Union Steam Ship Company had run services on the North Sea, Baltic and Mediterranean and in 1895 had started a cargo service between Denmark and the US Gulf of Mexico ports. They commenced passenger sailings to New York in 1898 and continued until the 1930s when passenger trade declined due to the depression and passenger sailings were discontinued in 1935. Cargo services continued and North Sea passenger services continue under the name DFDS Seaways.
