BBC Chartering & Logistics firms up Asia Pacific offering
HEAVYLIFT and project cargo specialist BBC Chartering & Logistics will start to operate under its own name in Asia and the Pacific region from July 1. BBC, which is based in Leer in Germany, had so far done business in the region through Asia Project Chartering, a joint venture with Danish Clipper Projects. APC will be dissolved from July 1 and BBC will take over the stake of Clipper Projects. The former APC trades will be served under the BBC name. The APC Safe Line connecting Asia and the east coast of South America will be called BBC Americana Line Far East Service. The APC Safe Line between Asia and South America’s West Coast will be named BBC Andino Express Line Far East Service. BBC will close the APC office in Shanghai but will keep APC’s offices in Singapore, Tokyo, Dalian, Melbourne and Dubai. It will open a new office in Seoul in South Korea. In addition, BBC said that it is also keeping staff in the offices, so that contact persons will not change for customers. BBC has appointed Oliver Andersen as new head of its regional operations, based in Singapore. Previously Mr Andersen was managing director at family-owned Andersen Shipping Company.
BBC and Clipper Projects said in an announcement that they had taken a joint decision to dissolve APC.
