 Harrison Line, officially T&J Harrison, was a shipping line founded by the brothers Thomas and James Harrison in Liverpool, England in 1853. It ran both cargo and passenger services, starting with the import of French brandy from Charente.

The ships were grouped under the Charente Steam-ship Company in 1871 with Thomas and James Harrison as the managers.

The company ceased trading in October 2000, with all remaining rights and privileges transferred to P&O Nedlloyd

In the 1977 Harrisons joined the container revolution on their Caribbean routes by becoming a partner in the Caribbean Overseas Lines (CAROL) consortium with Hapag Lloyd A.G. Hamburg, and Koninklijke Nederlandsche Stoomboot Maatschappij B. V. of Amsterdam. The new Caribbean service serving in Europe: Bremerhaven, Hamburg, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Tilbury, Le Havre and Liverpool. In 1978 the group was joined by Compagnie Generale Maritime (CGM) which brought the group's sailings up to a weekly service. The South African trade then also joined the container revolution when Harrisons had the City of Durban built by A. G. Weser, Germany. This ship was jointly owned by Ellerman-Harrison Container Lines, of which Ellermans, having the larger stake was be the senior partner. The final ship built for Harrisons was the Author, completed in December 1980 that was sold to Barclays Mercantile Industrial Finance and renamed Benarmin and placed on a wet boat charter to Ben Line, Harrisons remained managers.

In October 2000 Thos J. Harrison Ltd, on behalf of the Charente Steamship Company, relinquished all rights and privileges in themanagement of the liner trades which were transferred to P&O Nedlloyd and the last vestige of the once great Harrison Line disappeared forever. Thus Harrison Line was another well known British shipping company that disappeared as a result of the container revolution and the changing shipping industry as a result of mergers and consolidation within the shipping industry and globalization. It was truly the end of a glorious era as traditional shipping gave way to containerization.
