Caytrans BBC LLC adds M/V BBC Faaborg to services

By: | at 08:00 PM | Breakbulk & Projects  

In order to meet market demands, Caytrans BBC LLC recently added M/V BBC Faaborg to their service, and currently has a total of 4 vessels engaged in the trade lane primarily from the USG to NCSA servicing the project, mining and oil industry, but also catering to the bulk and steel market as required.

The M/V BBC Faaborg is another modern diversified multipurpose tweendeck vessel similar to several other vessels employed by the line.

With the new addition of a fourth vessel, Caytrans BBC will now be able to service their many clients and service contracts, both south and northbound, on a weekly basis from USG ports such as Houston and Mobile with fast transit times to Colombian and Venezuelan ports.

In order to better maintain sailing schedules and avoid berthing delays in Houston, the line recently moved its terminal activities in Houston to the City Docks, and vessels are now being handled by Schroder Marine Services at City Docks # 8, where there is sufficient storage space to stage the variety of cargoes being shipped by Caytrans BBC.

The line’s activities are managed by Dan-Gulf Shipping, Inc. in New Orleans that is also assisted with sales by the Houston BBC office.
