BBC Chartering - Break Bulk and Heavy Lift Shipping

With currently more than 140 vessels in its portfolio, BBC Chartering is a global leader in the heavy-lift and multipurpose tonnage segment with vessels ranging from 3,500 to 37,300dwt. It operates the single largest fleet in the market with lifting capacities reaching up to 800mt. The fleet can cater for project cargo, break bulk, bulk, or any other non-standardized cargo.

The overall number of vessels, their shallow drafts, large cargo holds, overall compact vessel dimensions and high lifting capacities are important fleet features and with that BBC Chartering offers flexibility and reliability for any assignment. This means BBC Chartering can respond to any project demand ensuring the required resources are aligned so the shipment will get delivered within time and budget.

With a fleet averaging below five years of age BBC Chartering employs one of the youngest and most efficient MPP/HL fleets in the world. This fleet policy ensures that ships with most up-to date technical characteristics can be offered to charterers. With the suitable vessel, the company also delivers suitable lifting solutions, develops stowage and lashing concepts, handles the cargo, and arranges required materials and paperwork.

Tender management and transport engineering capabilities

Experienced teams at BBC Chartering deliver the required expertise to ensure the transport is managed to the client's demands without compromising on operational quality, environmental aspects and occupational health and safety issues. With dedicated tender management and transport engineering capabilities BBC Chartering also seeks to support clients in the offshore oil and gas industry.

Moreover, BBC Chartering plays an important role as high quality carrier for the wind industry where the company has helped numerous clients turning their projects into successes.

Tramp services for full charters, part cargoes on affreightment contracts, liner services

In general BBC Chartering offers its ships through three lines of service. Clients can book their cargoes on tramp services for full charters or part cargoes, on affreightment contracts in order to secure shipping capacity over multiple shipments and last, on one of the regular liner services the company offers around the world. Any tonnage can be assigned flexibly to any type of service as this may be required by clients.

Being founded in 1997, BBC Chartering can be considered a young company. And as a consequence of its attractive business concept it has grown from operating 10 vessels to now about 140 ships. This development was supported by people that embrace the BBC Chartering idea of becoming the leading supplier of tonnage in the multipurpose and heavy lift market, people that 'move to improve'.

More than 300 people are available in 25 offices around the world to assist charterers in planning and executing their transport projects. BBC Chartering representatives will be pleased to discuss project opportunities. More information can be found on www.bbc-chartering.com.
