Welcome to the web site of The New Zealand Shipping Company Assn. (Incorporated), dedicated to the memory of the NZSCo and FSNCo.
The Shipping Company existed during the golden period of British Merchant Service. Passenger, Cargo and Cadet ships concentrated on shipping the produce of Australasia for a hundred years.
The Company existed from 1873 - 1971 with the last ships being disposed of in 1983. FSNCo existed as a shipowner from 1894 - 1983.
The Association consists of former employees of the New Zealand Shipping Company (NZSCo) and Federal Steam Navigation Co. (FSNCo).
Social gatherings take place from time to time and the Newsletter "Crossed Flags" is sent to all financial members.
The joining fee is currently NZ$12.00, or the equivalent amount in other currencies.

We hope you enjoy the history and share your memories. Why not add your name to our database and contact old friends and shipmates.
