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!

I was Export / Agency Manager at Aros / Siowalls in Lowestoft for 15 years from 1987. Regular callers I recall were Lady Bos and her sister Figaros, Sparos and her sister Lubeca (renamed Faros), Trabant, Cosmea, Corvette (renamed Arosia).
Hope that is helpful in jogging a few memories.

@Peter, Thank you very much, i have photos on my account of all these vessels! Unfortunately looking for years for information(any) of this Line but in vain. Nothing concrete, a few bits here and there, not a Book, not trading areas, curious what happened and bankrupted, liquified or something like this. I believe the Line was very healthy but for unknown reasons disappeared.
Once again thanks!

Cheers from Athens, Greece.
