After World War II the ‘Java China Japan Lijn’ (JCJL) merged with the ‘Buiten Lijnen’ of KPM and formed the ‘K J C P L’, trading under the name ‘Royal Interocean Lines’ (RIL) in the southern hemisphere. The Chinese name was ‘Java’ and the road where RIL built its head office after the war is now named ‘Java Road’. After more mergers the company is now known as ‘Nedlloyd’. 

The head office of JCJL had moved from Djakarta to Hong Kong after the war and the new RIL had to house many management and staff. Housing was at a premium already then and RIL acquired, among others, INTEROCEAN COURT at 26 Peak Road for senior Dutch staff and MOUNTAIN COURT for less senior staff late forties. Nedlloyd sold these properties in the late 80’s.
