/ MEDIA STATEMENT /

Hamburg “Steinweg” terminal visited by three BBC Chartering liner vessels simultaneously

It was on August 28, when three vessels of leading German heavy lift operator BBC Chartering from Leer could be sighted at Hamburg’s Steinweg terminal.

It was the BBC Arizona, BBC Ecuador, and the chartered-in vessel Arubaborg that loaded project cargo, steel, mining equipment and some containers for South America.

The company offers an extensive network of liner services around the world, which has been built up over the years.

Northern Europe is a major link in this 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. The first handles transports destined for the West Coast, the second to the East Coast of Latin America.

“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.” states Svend Andersen, Managing Director of BBC Chartering.

Sandra Markus, who heads the European liner activities at the company’s headquarter in Leer says: “Starting in 2005 we have introduced these regular services. These connections are now playing an important role in the development of the construction and mining industry of the emerging economies of Latin America.”

The company’s Hamburg based agent Thorsten Lüddeke is also pleased with the development: “We can enjoy regular high cargo volumes on these lines and we share an optimistic outlook that this is a sustainable trend.”

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 160mt.
