I had dealings with Aros Line who ran into Kings Ferry Wharf at Burton Stather on the River Trent,near Scunthorpe. Their agents were BOS Shipping who owned adjacent land. Their man cargoes (80,000 tonnes a year) were timber from Sweden,and Forest products such as wood pulp and paper,Portuguese timber and steel from Germany.The wharf closed many years ago (1991) and is a haulage yard now.

Aros were owned by Sten Siöwall AB of Västerås in Sweden

I think that time, and later the 80's were (..maybe) the highest tide for the Line with a lot of coasters on charter.

Thanks A LOT!
