Caytrans BBC LLC, the joint venture between BBC Chartering & Logistic of Leer,
Germany and Caytrans Project Services Americas, New Orleans announced the expansion of the service with the addition of a third vessel, BBC Canada. The BBC Canada is a multipurpose, shallow-draft vessel with a service speed of 15 knots. Built in 1999, the BBC Canada is a 4,800 dwt tweendecker with a capacity of 6,800 CBM and 2 x 60 ton cranes combinable to 120m tons.
The service, which is managed by Dan-Gulf Shipping, Inc., is now in its second year and, due to a market demand to offer more sailings per month between the US Gulf, Jamaica, Venezuela, Colombia and other ports in the Caribbean and NCSA, the additional ship will enhance cargo and lifting capacity.
The line focuses principally on carrying project cargo, oil and gas equipment, mining equipment, heavy lifts, bulk cargo and IMO.
Sales is handled by BBC USA in Houston, who is providing both inside and outside sales in the Texas region, and by Dan-Gulf Shipping from their New Orleans office.
