Tanker and liner traffic

Back to exhibitions

Norwegian liner and tanker traffic prospered during the interwar years. Bergen had a key role in overseas liner traffic during the years leading up to World War II, but trailed behind other Norwegian ports when it came to tanker traffic. Yet, in 1939, Bergen had the largest Norwegian shipping company that specialised in tanker traffic, namely Westfal-Larsen & Co. A/S. As tanker traffic in its traditional form disappeared during the immediate post-war years, Bergen developed into a leading Norwegian port in the view of the shipment of crude oil and chemicals. The exhibitions include a wide range of models of ships from Bergen’s tanker and liner traffic.
