The Company was formed at Newcastle in 1864 by a group of prominent local manufacturers with trade interests with both London and the continent. It was initially known as the Tyne Steam Shipping Co Ltd. In 1903 it amalgamated with the Tees Union Shipping Co Ltd to form the Tyne Tees Shipping Co Ltd. Since 1884 both companies had operated the Free Trade Wharf Co Ltd in London. This now became part of the Tyne Tees Steam Shipping Company Ltd. In 1943 the whole company was taken over by Coast Lines Ltd.
