    ODD’S & SOD’S OF BRITISH SHIPPING

    In 1966, five British shipping companies P & O, Ocean Transport & Trading, British & Commonwealth and Furness Withy covertly formed Overseas Containers Limited to trade in Australia & New Zealand.

    Sir Andrew Chrihton, the first Chairman of OCL, famously called the other British shipping companies, who also plied their trades in Australia and New Zealand, THE ODD’s and SOD’s of British Shipping !!!
    Those shipping companies were the great and long-established Port Line, Ben Line, Blue Star Lines and Ellermans which, between them, formed a formidable adversary to OCL.
