The company was formed with three ships from the tonnage of the failed United States Mail Steamship Company. Two of the ships, America and George Washington, were originally German vessels that had been seized during World War I and kept as reparations. America and George Washington made New York to Bremen runs, while Centennial State ran from New York to London.

Elders & Fyffes Shipping, Limited, was founded in 1902 as a separate company, but only catered for a handful of passengers. In 1910 E&F came under the control of the American United Fruit Company, but retained their own identity. The Imperial Direct Line closed in 1911 and their ships either sold or returned to Elder Dempster & Company, causing E&F to enter the passenger market.

HISTORY -- The National Line (National Steam Navigation Company) was founded in Liverpool in 1863. The first intention of this line was to sail Liverpool to the US south. However, due to the civil war, routes were set up to New York. The National Line was one of the first lines to establish agencies all over Norway, and became quite popular in the early years. The Norwegians that traveled by this line had to go via England, as they had no direct sailing from Norwegian ports. In 1870 the company added London - New York sailings and made irregular Boston sailings.
