BBC Chartering launches new monthly service connecting the Persian Gulf and India with Australia


BBC Chartering announces the launch of a new monthly service between the Persian Gulf, India and Australia. The connection is first served by the M/V BBC Brisbane which is currently already on her way loading in Mumbai, Port Chennai and Port Kelang. She is scheduled to arrive in Brisbane in the first week of August.

With fixed monthly eastbound sailings, the new connection is the only service in the market which offers shippers of project and heavy lift cargo a most reliable and competitive frequent shipping solution to Australia. The capacity operates under BBC Chartering’s high-performance liner and semi- liner network for any port, any cargo service and utilizes the full range of multipurpose and heavy lift vessels operated by BBC Chartering.

The service is a major shipping contributor to 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, India to Brisbane, Australia. Svend Andersen, CEO of BBC Chartering stated: “We are pleased that BBC Chartering was selected as carrier of choice to serve this seminal project, convincing all stakeholders of the highest service standards in project shipping.”
