HISTORY -- The New Zealand Shipping Company Limited was incorporated in 1873 in Christchurch, New Zealand, by a group of local farmers and merchants, who were dissatisfied with the country's existing shipping facilities and their inability to cope with the country's rapidly expanding trade. The company was initially administered from New Zealand, with input from a 'Board of Advice' in the City of London. The new company began by purchasing four second-hand iron sailing ships.
