The Fleets

Svenska Levantlinjen Dan Brostrom / Rederi AB Sverige-Levanten 1911-1927/ Svenska Orient Linien 1927-1984 (Swedish Levant Line / Swedish Orient Line.)

Formed as Svenska Levantlinjen Dan Broström in 1911 by Dan Broström, the first ships were transferred from the Dan Broström subsidiary Tirfing, the UPLAND, DALAND, JEMTLAND and ENGLAND. Two additional steamers were transferred from Tirfing in 1912-1913 the GREKLAND (1) and SYDLAND (1).

During World War I the service was stopped owing to the unsettled conditions in the Mediterranean.
In 1918 the company was restyled as Rederi AB Sverige-Levanten. When the war was finished the service started again and altogether eight ships were transferred from other subsidiaries most of them second hand tonnage bought during the war years, one of these ships was lost and was replaced in 1921 by a motorship SULINA built at Landskrona.

The company met stiff competion from the big, well established shipping lines and the company operated with losses, only in the middle of the twenties the company became profitable. When the old steamers were sold the Rederi AB Sverige-Levanten was liquidated with considerable losses and its activities were taken over by Tirfing in 1927.

In 1927 the Svenska Levant Linien was restyled as Svenska Orient Linien (Swedish Orient Line) or SOL and was part of Tirfing. The Svenska Orient Linien fleet consisted in 1931 of seven ships.

In 1938 fresh grapes begin to be shipped in refrigerated holds to the United Kingdom and the Nordic countries. In 1948 shipments of Jaffa oranges began. Swedish Orient Line participated in the introduction campaign.

In 1952, the Svenska Orient Linien fleet consisted of seventeen ships. By 1957 the Svenska Orient Linien became an independent shipping company with its own funnelmarkings.
In 1978 the funnelmarkings were changed again into the Tirfing markings. In 1979 the specially designed RoRo vessels TYRUSLAND, THEBELAND, VEGALAND and VIKINGLAND joined the fleet.

In 1984 Transatlantic took over all Broströms' liner operations changing from this in 1995 to B&N Svenska Orient Linien A/B until 1997 when Swedish Orient Line A/B was adopted. In 2000 SolNiver Lines was formed together with Greek Scan Orient Shipping. On 1st September 2006 the Swedish Orient Line AB took over the service previously run by SolNiver Lines and reverted to Swedish Orient Line.
