The ship was transferred to service between the Dutch East Indies and the west coast of North America after the declaration of the war in Europe. After entry of the United States into the war the ship was operated by Dutch agents of the U.S. War Shipping Administration (WSA) from February 1942 to February 1946 as a troopship from the U.S. West Coast to Pacific war zones. The ship sank in 1953 during a voyage from Lourenco Marques to Mozambique. All passengers were saved.
