A cargo shipping company, it was.Wikipedia:

In late 2005 the Lykes Lines brand was replaced by the CP Ships brand following CP's one brand strategy promoted by the "One brand - One team" project. CP Ships itself was bought up by TUI AG and merged in mid-2006 in the Hapag-Lloyd organization.

But who was Lykes? Wikipedia:

In the 1870s Dr. Howell Tyson Lykes abandoned a medical career in Columbia, South Carolina, and took over a 500-acre (2.0 km2) family cattle ranch in rural Hernando County north of Tampa. The Lykes Family started the first school in this county in Spring Hill and the library at the county seat, Brooksville, also bears the Lykes name. The family cemetery is located outside of Brooksville.

In 1895, Dr. Lykes moved to Ballast Point in Tampa, Florida where he began shipping cattle to Cuba. Gradually, his seven sons joined the family operations which incorporated in 1910 as Lykes Brothers.

Eventually they became the largest landowner in Florida.
