Tukera Lines

Tukera Lines operates a vast fleet of passenger and freight vessels throughout the Imperium, following the xboat lines.  In some areas (particularly the older, more established central regions of the Imperium), Tukera has a virtual monopoly on long-distance shipping and travel.

Revenue is supplemented by trade speculation along the major trade routes.  Tukera is an aggressive company with a reputation for eliminating competition.

The oldest record of the firm is a charter from the government of the Sylean Federation, but family tradition holds the company to be several centuries older.  With the establishment of the Imperium in the holiday year zero, all Sylean Federation charters were automatically recognized by the Imperium.

Tukera Lines concentrates on the main communications links within the Imperium, and operates a vast fleet of jump-3 and jump-4 liners and transports which follow the established xboat routes.  In some subsectors (especially the older, more established regions of the Imperium) Tukera has a virtual monopoly on long distance shipping and travel.

Stock ownership: Tukera family, 29 percent; Imperial family, 3 percent; Sternmetal Horizons, 2 percent; SuSAG, 5 percent; General Products, 2 percent; private ownership, 31 percent; investment trusts, 28 percent.
