The Fleets

Scindia Steam Navigation Co.

Established in 1919, this was the first large scale Indian owned shipping company and started an India - Europe service with the LOYALTY (ex-EMPRESS OF INDIA (1)), but following a ten year agreement with British companies, was restricted to the Indian coastal shipping trade for this period. In 1932 the company purchased the Bengal Burma S.N. Co. The company entered the pilgrim trade to Saudi Arabia in 1937 and in the same year took over the Indian Co-operative Navigation & Trading Co. and the Ratnagar S.N. Co. 1939 Bombay S.N. Co. acquired and 1941 Eastern S.N. Co. also taken over. Services between India and the U.S.A began in 1947 and regular passenger and cargo services between Calcutta and the U.K./ Continent started in 1948. In 1950 a cargo and passenger service opened between India and Singapore and in 1954 an India to East Africa route was inaugurated. An India to West Africa service commenced in 1956 and in 1964 a Calcutta - Great Lakes service started. 1968 a service to the Persian Gulf was started. Scindia also operated services to Australia and New Zealand. Following the global shipping slump of the 1980s, Scindia S.N. Co. gradually sold off it's fleet and ceased trading.
