BBC Chartering opens office in Antwerp

August 01 - German multipurpose and heavy lift operator BBC Chartering has opened a new commercial office in Antwerp, Belgium, writes Adam Flensborg Safikhany.

The Port of Antwerp represents an important hub for BBC Chartering's liner activities to South America and the Far East. Supporting the company's future development, the opening of the new office aims at strengthening BBC Chartering's commercial presence in the Benelux market.

One consequence of opening its own booking office is that BBC Chartering has terminated the previous commercial agency representation it had with Van Dosselaere & Achten, although the latter will continue to represent BBC Chartering as agents for all Belgium ports.

The Antwerp office represents the 26th global presence and the seventh presence of BBC Chartering in Europe. Sandra Bal has been appointed as local BBC Chartering representative and confidently states, "With the new office, we offer one more direct point of access to the shipping solutions provided by BBC Chartering."

Bal will operate from BBC Chartering Belgium no's new offices on Zwarte Weg.
