The State Line ran a service between Glasgow and Liverpool to New Oreleans in 1872. A New York service was started in April, 1873. The first general agent in Norway was M. R. Raffel. The 1873 authorization was to convey emigrants by the State Line steamship to New York and New Orleans. In 1874 J. Krantz was appointed general agent, and was authorized to convey emigrants via Hull and Glasgow to New York and New Orleans, and from there to the final destination in America.
On May 30th, 1891 the authorization for the State Line (then held by M. R. Raffel) was withdrawn, after the company had encountered financial difficulty and was purchased by the Allan Line. The ships and service were from then operated under the name of Allan & State Line.
