bbcelbe2008Jun19_3073PROD Through the 2010 season, the BBC Elbe has been to Duluth Superior twice, once in October, 2007 when she loaded grain and again in June the next year. She is seen here during the June trip when she discharged wind turbine parts at Lake Superior Warehousing Company at the Duluth port terminal. 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 Elbe 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.
