bbcshanghi2507119-1-055 Through the 2010 season, the BBC Shanghai has been to Duluth-Superior twice, once in July 2005 when she discharged wind turbine parts for transport by truck to Manitoba and again in July the next year when she loaded 2 electrical modules for Iceland. The BBC ships are managed by BBC Chartering & Logistics of Leer, Germany. The names of many ships in their fleet start with BBC. Others beside Shanghai are: Africa, Alabama, Asia, California, Denmark, Europe, Peru, North American and many more. I am sure it helps to get business in Peru if you send a ship there call the BBC Peru. It takes a little nerve, in my opinion, to name your ship after a whole continent, or even a whole state for that matter. They have them all covered, though. All, that is, except Duluth.
