HISTORY -- British India Steam Navigation Company ("BI") was formed in 1856 as the Calcutta and Burmah Steam Navigation Company. The company had been formed out of Mackinnon, Mackenzie & Co, a trading partnership of the Scots William Mackinnon and Robert Mackenzie, to carry mail between Calcutta and Rangoon. It became British India SN Co in 1862. Under the hand of Lord Inchcape, who had become chairman in 1913, the company became part of the P&O group of companies in 1914 through a complex amalgamation, but continued with its own identity and organisation for another nearly 60 years until 1972, when it was entirely absorbed into P&O.

HISTORY -- The company was founded in 1881 to serve Bremen industries importing cotton, jute and rice from India and the Middle East. Services to the Baltic proved unprofitable and were soon abandoned. Routes to the East Indies were handled by a subsidiary, the Asiatic Line, between 1888 and 1894 when the two companies were integrated. During the period of expansion following the opening of the Suez Canal, routes from British India and Burma were extended to North European Ports and North America.
