Our Heritage: 1964

Heritage 12

With Sir Derek Bibby now at the helm the company more than trebled its overseas earnings and the total tonnage of the Bibby Line in the 1970s exceeded one million tons.

Sir Derek made an exhausting but successful bid to keep the company afloat through the worst years that the shipping industry had ever seen.

In 1965 Bibby Line in partnership with Clarksons, Houlder Brothers, Bowstring, Silverline and British Steamship Company established the Seabridge Consortium operating bulk carriers and oil-bulk-ore vessels.
