DCL - Direct Container Line
Direct Container Line (DCL) was founded in August 1978 to service the ocean transportation needs of Australian importers buying foods from US manufacturers. By taking advantage of the transition in shipping to containerization, DCL was able to offer smaller US exporters the most cost-effective way to ship their goods to international markets. Initial trade service from the West Coast of the US to Australia/New Zealand rapidly expanded to cover the total US and worldwide markets.
