Description

This is the story of Manx Line, a private shipping company which started the first roll-on/roll-off service between the Isle of Man and the UK.  It was spawned from a conventional containerised cargo service which had started in the wake of industrial action by the National Union of Seamen.

The new company with its single ship took on the long-established Isle of Man Steam Packet Company, the principal carrier of cargo to the Island, and won.  It’s success inevitably led to a merger of the two companies.  Manx Line was to have a major and lasting impact on the Island’s infrastructure and economy.
