Vedic was originally planned for emigrant work out of Europe, and at the time of her planning, she hadn't actually been allocated to any particular shipping line.
In the June of 1918, Vedic underwent her sea trials, and then sailed to the Clyde, being handed over on July 10th.
Vedic was refitted at Middlesborough as a passenger liner, and placed on the Liverpool - Clyde - Canada emigrant route in 1920.
Vedic was placed on the Liverpool - Halifax - Portland, Maine for the winter of 1921, with a summer terminus of New York.
On May 17th, 1922, Vedic together with Poland, were placed on the Bremen - Southampton - Cherbourg - Quebec - Montreal route.
Vedic was refitted by Harland and Wolff in 1925 for the Liverpool - Australia migrant service of the White Star-Aberdeen and Blue Funnel Joint Service, with her first sailing for them in October. She was predominantly chartered by the Salvation Army, and flew their flag alongside White Star's.
On February 26th, 1930, Vedic was laid up at Milford Haven.
