Nedlloyd was a Dutch shipping company, formed in 1970 as the result of a merger of several shipping lines:

    Stoomvaart Maatschappij Nederland (SMN) , Koninklijke Rotterdamsche Lloyd (KRL),     Koninklijke Java-China-Paketvaart-Lijnen (KJCPL), and Vereenigde Nederlandsche Scheepvaartmaatschappij (VNS).

The company used to bring these shipping companies together was the N.V.Nederlandsche SCheepvaart Unie, (NSU) which dated from 1908. In 1977 it was decided by the then management to do away with the name NSU and rebrand all the business units into one Nedlloyd style. At the same time KJCPL (known in the Southern Hemisphere as Royal Interocean Lines) was to be also part of Nedlloyd Lines, as the shipping arm of the Nedlloyd Group was to be known.

 Thus in 1977 NSU changed its name to Koninklijke Nedlloyd Groep N.V. ("Royal Nedlloyd Group"). In the 1990s the Nedlloyd Group faced tough competition and eventually had to find a partner for their container-liner business. For that reason Nedlloyd Lines formed a joint venture with P&O Containers, to become P&O Nedlloyd in 1996. Eventually P&O Nedlloyd, despite a reversed listing on the Amsterdam Bourse, was not able to fend off competition and was taken over by Maersk in 2005.
