OrganizationEdit

By 2820, the Dutch Trading Company (DTC) is one of the oldest companies within the First Gigaquadrant. Ever since its predecessors founding on Earth back in 2025, the company has been experts in trade, commerce and shipping. The DTC provided the Dutch Government with the vessels that made them possible to leave Earth in 2089 and star their exodus.

By 2100 when the Dutch reached the Finduila Sector, the DTC was officially formed and ever since dominated and controlled much of the Dutch markets and kept its heavy influence on the Dutch economy. Over the following decades, the DTC expanded, secured their dominant position by 2820 grew interested to enter the economic markets within the Cyrannus and Quadrant Galaxies.

The Hollandia Cruise Line provides the Dutch people with high standard civilian passenger transports within the Finduila Sector and beyond. Besides controlling the passenger transports, it also acts as a booking agency for holidays for the Dutch.

Hollandia Fleet Yards

The Hollandia Fleet Yards are one of the most important and profitable department within the DTC, producing most of the vessels seen in the Finduila Sector under Dutch flags. Whether for civilian purposes or for military purposes, the Hollandia Yards deliver quality, reliable vessels for a decent price including maintained contracts. Ever since 2100, it has been producing vessels for the Dutch Military as well.

Hollandia Shipping Line

The Hollandia Shipping Line is the second most important asset within the DTC and contains the cargo fleet of the DTC. As a major exporter, the Shipping Line operates in many ports within the Cyrandia Cluster, delivering ordered products from the Finduila Sector to its costumers. So far, the DTC does not control any ports outside the Finduila Sector yet.

HistoryEdit

By 2100, in the early years of the Kingdom of the Netherlands after their arrival in the Finduila Sector the DTC was officially formed by various business man and woman and soon found itself the leading company in terms of shipping materials and goods to the new Dutch colonies of Finduila. Having access to the hyperlanes, the DTC was contracted by the Dutch government to maintain their military vessels and ten years later by 2110 gained the contrat to construct, design and produce new military vessels as well, a contract that still runs in modern times.

For the next decades the company grew as did its influence. Its expansion and desire to construct its own military fleet like the VOC in ancient times, the Dutch government forbade it by law and forced the DTC to partly allow Dutch governmental control over the company as well.

In 2804, when the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus and the Legatus Finduilica conquered the Finduila Sector, the DTC escaped Imperial or Legatus nationalization and remains an independent company. By 2820, the Dutch had finally gained full access to the hyper lanes of the Cyrandia Cluster and began researching the inevitable course of entering the Cyrandia markets as well, much to the dismay of its main concurrent- the Muunivelle Shipping Company. By 2820, the DTC was often hired the trade federation Froramsilia Company Association to ferry cargo and materials across the Cluster, earning a docking port at Matakoro in the process.
