CaytransBBC strengthens Caribbean service

February 1 - Shipping line BBC Chartering will add the heavy lift vessel BBC Ocean to the CaytransBBC LLC service during February.

The BBC Ocean is a 6,150 dwt tweendeck, multi purpose vessel with a cargo hold capacity of 9,329 cu m. The vessel is equipped with two cranes with a combined lifting capacity of 120 tonnes.

CaytransBBC, which offers weekly breakbulk liner services between Houston and Mobile, USA, to the north coast of South America, the Caribbean and Central America, will operate BBC Ocean.

BBC Chartering and Dan-Gulf Shipping jointly handle sales on the CaytransBBC service, and according to Mac Bruton, vice president for sales and marketing at Dan-Gulf, "we believe that the BBC Ocean will allow us to offer better options for larger parcels into and out of the North Coast of South America."
