Sixth of June, 1971 was a historical day for the contemporary shipping industry of Sri Lanka, when the country's legislatures gave the nod to establish Ceylon Shipping Corporation as a fully government owned commercial enterprise. Infant National Carrier under the brand name of CSC grew from strength to strength and earned the credibility as a dependable carrier from Europe to Fareast and North of India to Australia. CSC helped many non-traditional export produces to enter global markets and establish footholds when the freight was a prohibitive factor and sailing opportunities were minimal at the time. In 1992, Government of Sri Lanka conferred more commercial independence to CSC enabling her to respond to market forces more quickly, by converting the Corporation into a limited liability company Ceylon Shipping Corporation Ltd. Government of Sri Lanka still fully owns CSC being one of the strategically important state entities for the island nation. CSC was the first South Asian carrier to start container services from South Asia to Europe in 1980.
