Hadley: The Hadley Shipping Co. Ltd.

Today the number of British owners in the tramping or bulk trades is into single figures, yet within living memory there were hundreds. One notable survivor is the Hadley Shipping Co. Ltd., which was formed in 1926 to own tankers. This history begins with the formation of the Immingham Agency Co. in 1912 and included other associated companies: Coastal Tankers Ltd., Iranian Tanker Co. Ltd., and Leadenhall Shipping Co. Ltd. There is a fleet list covering 91 owned and managed ships, 110 illustrations, 10 in full colour. “Hadley” is an A5 hardback of 128 pages with a full cover dust jacket.
