The Red Stripe Trading and Logistics Company

The Red Stripe Trading Company was formed by Bartholomew Bronson with investments from controversial figures such as Sire William Skeat and Jekyll Vortivask, alongside his own funds. Initially based in Ashdale's Kharazi colonies following the coup d'etat upon the previous governor, Sir Angus McPherson, the company siezed a small portion of the Dominion's tobacco plantations and, once the first crews were formed, established itself across Kandarin, Southern Misthalin and the Wushanko Isles.

The company's name comes from slang within Ashdale to denote a foreign sailor, or a 'red bander'. After the region gained independance from Asgarnia, many of the crews changed their ensigns to incorporate a red band diagonally from the top left to the bottom right.
Due to it's controversial investors and quick rise into the limelight, the company is seen by many as a threat in a broad range of senses, with Asgarnia condemning it as a criminal enterprise, labelling many of the affiliated captains as pirates.

Nevertheless, the company is overwhelmingly popular with merchants from Ashdale, and known throughout Port Sarim, Port Khazard, Camelot, Burthorpe and Ardougne. Alongside this, the Arc's residents have welcomed it with open arms. Captains working with the company are known to be efficient and quick witted, and overall the Red Stripe brand has a positive reputation behind it. Commonly traded goods include building materials such as bamboo, weaponry from both east and west, gunpowder, and luxury goods such as tobacco and vanilla. In recent times, the company has been expanding into the mining and production markets across the globe.

Shipping Routes




The Red Stripe Co. has somewhat static shipping routes for the most part, excluding special orders. The red line represents the companies orginal journey, and the blue represents the return, both of which are still undertaken today. The journey starts at the company's warehouse in Ardougne, the ship casts away carrying luxury goods from the market to trade in Port Khazard and Yanille, stocking up on runes and weapons. These are unloaded in Karamja for vanilla, tobacco and other exotic colonial items which are promptly delivered to Port Sarim.

At Sarim, the ship will stock up for the journey east to the Wushanko isles, where it trades for the usual eastern goods such as bamboo, gunpowder and cherrywood. After a brief tour of the Arc and the Skull, the ship will return to Sarim to unload the cargo in the company's main warehouse, embarking to Mudskipper point to careen and perform maintenance upon the vessel before the return journey to Ardougne.

The green line represents the newer shipping lane, used both ways for more specialty cargo transport. This route links the Company mining industries in Burthorpe, Camelot and Sarim with the large warehouses of Ardougne and the eastern colonial holding of Mos Le'Harmless, as well as the links out to the Arc and Skull.

Company Hierarchy



The Red Stripe splits its operations into three large Chambers of Commerce, the Eastern (yellow), Central (blue), and Western (red) Chambers. These areas act semi-separate to each other, each overseen by one of the Board of Directors, with a hierarchy spanning down into many appropriate areas - such as clerks, men-at-arms, and appropriate general workers for the areas industries.

While the Directors of the Eastern, Central and Western Chambers form the board, a chairman is appointed to have overarching control of the entire Company. This position is often held by the Director of the Central Chamber, also known as the Grand Chamber. This chamber is not only responsible for industry and trade within the Central Chambers boarders, but is also responsible for control of the colonial holdings. It is expected of the Chairman to also keep an interest in both the East and West, to assure all is going smoothly.

There are however a number of departments within the company that are not split by area, such as naval operations which possess overarching Rear, Vice and Full Admiral ranks to oversee the various Red Stripe Captains and organise the warships of the Company throughout all areas of business and across the open sea.

The Company also possesses it's own Men-At-Arms units, often recruited from benefactors or mercenary companies, that act as a military force in the colonies, as well as a guard force in the mainland. These Men-At-Arms are usually hired separate in each Chamber, with a Commander in each to control the garrison.

Piracy


While many nations, merchant companies or sailors fear the scourge that is piracy, the Red Stripe maintains a different attitude. Founded by controversial figures who have themselves profited, if not undertaken, piracy in earlier lives, the Company seeks to benefit rather than suffer from those sailing under the black.

With this in mind, the Red Stripe pays out large amounts of gold to buy off or 'sponsor' piracy against other merchant ships, naval fleets, and any and all competition - all while buying the safety of their own ships in open water. This allows for the Company to raise shipping prices due to the danger, and successfully wipe out competition who may undercut these prices.

The Red Stripe does, however, have a brand to maintain. Associating with the brutal act of piracy would be frowned upon by most - if not all - nations the Company trades in, and would lose the support of the public. In such, the sponsoring of pirate crews is done largely in secret, through a few pirates known to the Company who can be trusted. While approaching new pirate crews to accept this sponsorship, there are of course those who turn it away, though the Red Stripe often leaves a large bounty on their head and those pirates who have already accepted Red Stripe gold are often hungry for more. Should a ship or two in the know escape, there is often little proof and only the words of a pirate to go on, against an established and previously fair trading Company in whatever lands the pirates try and talk to.

The Red Stripe similarly offeres a rare chance to these pirate crews under their sponsorship, accepting to buy their plundered wares and fence them as their own, giving the pirates a rare good price.
