A hamburger with triple BBC Chartering vessels

September 7 - It was a case of once, twice, three times a vessel as a trio of leading German heavy lift operator BBC Chartering's vessels were in the port of Hamburg simultaneously.

BBC Arizona, BBC Ecuador, (pictured below) and chartered-in vessel Arubaborg lined up at Hamburg's Steinweg terminal to load project cargo, steel, mining equipment and some containers for South America.

Northern Europe is a major link in the company's liner network that connects with North America and South America featuring regular sailings on the BBC Andino Express Line and the BBC Americana Line via its European service.

"We have been supporting the economic development of Latin America since the very early days of our company's history, when we started to supply tramp services," says Svend Andersen, managing director of BBC Chartering.

Operating monthly on a roundtrip basis, these services employ dedicated heavy lift vessels that allow flexible and safe cargo handling securing a minimum lifting capacity of 160 tonnes.

BBC commenced operations in 1997 with a fleet of ten multipurpose vessels. With currently more than 145 vessels being marketed by BBC Chartering, the company claims the single largest heavy lift fleet in the market with lifting capacities reaching up to 800 tonnes.
