Background: *Royal Dutch Shell, commonly known as Shell, is a global energy company headquartered in the Netherlands and with its registered office in London. It is the second-largest energy company and the fifth-largest company in the world with operations in over 90 countries.

Shell Transport and Trading Company was started in the early 1800’s by Marcus Samuel, a London antique dealer who imported seashells from the Far East to supply the fashion and manufacturing industries. This later became a thriving import-export business run by his sons, Marcus (Jr) and Sam.

In the mid 1800’s oil was largely used in lighting and lubricants but with the arrival of the internal combustion engine in the 1880’s there was increased demand for transport fuel. Building on their shipping expertise, the Samuel brothers commissioned a fleet of steamers to carry oil in bulk. This was formalised as the Shell Transport and Trading Company in 1897and it used a mussel shell as its logo.

Shell Transport’s activities in the East, combined with a search for new sources of oil brought them into contact with Royal Dutch Petroleum. The two companies joined forces in 1903 to protect themselves against the growing power of the US based Standard Oil. They fully merged into the Royal Dutch Shell Group in 1907. At this time Shell changed its logo to the scallop shell, which is used today.
