The Jaluit-Gesellschaft operated two steamers in Micronesia, the Oceana (from 1901-1903) and the Germania (from 1904-1914). When the Norddeutscher Lloyd terminated its Sydney-HongKong run end of 1901, the Jaluit Gesellschaft extended its run in Micronesia to include a route Sydney-Jaluit-Pohpei-Saipan-Yap-Palau-tHongKong and also included German New Guinea in its route.
