The Russian Steam Navigation and Trading Company (Russian: Русское общество пароходства и торговли or ROPiT Russian: РОПиТ, also referred as Russian S.N.Co.) of Odessa was one of the biggest joint stock steamship companies in Imperial Russia. It was established in 1856 and ceased to exist in 1918 due to nationalization after the revolution in Russia.
In 1858 the company obtained a twenty-four year contract for usage of the port of Villafranca Marittima, on the Mediterranean with the Kingdom of Sardinia.
In 1901 it had a fleet of 72 steamships. Company stock was listed on Saint-Petersburg Stock Exchange.
