Hadley Shipping Co, London

Hadley Shipping Co, London

Hadley Shipping Co, London, Founded in 1926 with the purchase of a tanker from Anglo-Saxon Petroleum Co, which was chartered back to the seller. More tankers were purchased which were also mainly chartered out. In 1934 the company entered the coastal tanker trade and in 1935 purchased a refrigerated banana carrier which was chartered to Jamaica Banana Producers Ltd. Two ships were lost during the second world war and in 1947 a Liberty ship was purchased and chartered to Houlder Bros. More new tankers were purchased in the 1950s for chartering and in 1956 the company withdrew from the coastal tanker trade. In 1967 Hadleys re-entered the dry cargo business with the purchase of bulk cargo carriers and also concentrated on short sea traders. The company is one of the few family owned tramp shipping companies still in operation.
