Chartered Vessels

Like other operators, the Atlantic Transport Line chartered vessels whenever it needed additional capacity quickly and cost effectively. After its creation in 1902 most of these came from other International Mercantile Marine Company lines, principally the Leyland Line. Ships transferred temporarily from other International Mercantile Marine Company lines became very important to the operation of the Atlantric Transport Line during the First World War.

Other Associated Ships

The A.T.L. ordered Minnewaska II as one of its new Minne class ships, but because of a downturn in business she was transferred by the International Mercantile Marine Company to the White Star Line during construction and sailed as Arabic and was never operated by the Atlantric Transport Line.

When the IMM purchased five ships from the Pacific Mail Steamship Company in 1915 the deal included the older and smaller China with the four vessels sought for the Atlantic Transport Line. China was not wanted and was quickly sold on and never sailed for any International Mercantile Marine Company company.

In a rather puzzling short notice about the International Mercantile Marine Company purchase of the Dominion Line the New York Times commented that as part of the new arrangements for the Dominion Line "the Boston service is to have the two steamers from the Atlantic Transport Line, Haverford and Merion." These were American Line vessels, and this was probably simply an error.
