| Through the 2010 season, the BBC Plata has been to Duluth-Superior three times, in July, 2007 and May, 2008 when she loaded grain at CHS in Superior. She was back a third time in August 2008 when wind turbine parts built by Siemens in Denmark were discharged.
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 Plata 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.
