S. Pacific in Duluth

In 2005, 7 boats arrived from the BBC Chartering & Logistic Company in Leer, Germany. I doubt I was alone in wondering at first why the British Broadcasting Company had gone into the shipping business. The BBC England even made two visits here and it had nothing to do with the British Broadcasting Company. The next year, 5 BBC ships made at least one visit to the Twin Ports, but until today, we had seen none this season. The BBC Mexico has nothing to do with Mexico but it will be here today to load bentonite and may depart this evening. Meanwhile, the S. Pacific, a ship that was here once last year to load wheat, arrived last night (above) to discharge wind turbine parts at the Port Terminal. Photo taken on June 21, 2007.
