BBC enhances Australian services

BBC Chartering has launched a monthly service connecting the Middle East Gulf, India and Australia.

With fixed monthly eastbound sailings, the service, according to BBC Chartering, will provide a reliable and competitive solution for shipping project and heavy lift cargo to Australia.

The service will transport cargoes for Queensland’s ‘new generation rollingstock’ (NGR) project. As part of this, an agreement was signed to transport new train coaches and perform 18 consecutive monthly voyages from Mumbai to Brisbane.

The first vessel on the service, BBC Brisbane, will call at Mumbai, Chennai and Port Klang and is scheduled to arrive in Brisbane in the first week of August.
