Formed by Johann Hermann Niemann and others in 1873 the Dampfschiffahrts Gesellschaft Neptun started operations with six ships from Bremen to Norway, Sweden, Denmark and the German Baltic ports. In 1875 a service from Bremen to Rotterdam and Amsterdam was started and in 1877 a Bremen Hamburg service was begun, the company expanded rapidly and new liner services were opened to the Mediterranean, Spain and Portugal.
In the first World War DG Neptun operated only in the Baltic Area. DG Neptun started World War I with seventy-six steamships, when the war ended only fifty six ships were left.
In the years 1920, 1921 and 1922 the company started the liner service again, which had been closed down at the beginning of World War I. The first motorship the GAUSS entered the fleet in 1925. During the civil war in Spain (1936-1939) the liner service to Spain was stopped.

The Bremen West Sweden service was started again in 1948, followed in 1949 to Spain and Portugal. The motorship LIBELLE was the first post war new building for the fleet.
