Yes, though actually Compagnie Luxembourgeoise de Navigation (the "d'" was a trade press error that has been copied quite a lot)

The "d" is in the company name ... see link to their bulkers etc.  Written as CLdN as in original question.

Sorry not to be clear.  The question was, what do the letters CLdN stood for?
My answer is "Compagnie Luxembourgeoise de Navigation.
But you will find in some placed the erroneous "d'Navigation"

Thank you gentlemen. Preumably the Saverys family is still involved. They owned nearly everything in Belgian shipping. As a journalist in about 1983 I had an interview with the late Philippe Saverys of CMB/Bocimar/Cobelfret etc. A one=stop shop it was for the latest news from the whole Belgian shipping industry.

As I understand it, the Saverys sold out their share of Cobelfret to their partners, the Cigrang family (the origin of "ci" in Bocimar).
