BBC Chartering boosts westbound capacity

May 5 - BBC Chartering plans to increase the capacity of its services between the Mediterranean and North America.

The regular, up to bi-weekly, westbound service offers project cargo customers BBC Chartering's liner and semi-liner network and utilises the carrier's fleet of 180 multipurpose and heavy lift vessels, including ro-ro tonnage.

According to BBC, the vessels are deployed on a flexible basis so that the carrier is able to match the available cargo and trading requirements with the vessels.

"We are pleased to help numerous large scale projects in North America and take this as an opportunity to strengthen our westbound services from the Mediterranean and vice-versa," said Svend Andersen, ceo of BBC Chartering.

He added that underlying volumes from several contracts BBC is supporting, including wind power projects, LNG developments, and New York's Hudson Yards project to develop parts of Manhattan, have enabled BBC to offer opportunities to other shippers who can utilise its steady westbound capacity.

Typical loading ports in the Mediterranean are Derince (Turkey), Genoa, Monfalcone (Italy), Tarragona (Spain), but any other port can be added to consolidate any cargo.

For return voyages to the Mediterranean typical loading ports are Houston, Vera Cruz, Philadelphia and Charleston, discharging at any required port in the Mediterranean or beyond.

The additional capacity to the existing service will also extend the service to the Great Lakes and the US Gulf. The service is already featuring two rotations, which can be found here.
