Dutch heavy lift shipping company Jumbo and Germany-based BBC Chartering are joining forces in a strategic co-operation, the Global Project Alliance, effective immediately.
Under the agreement, the parties would combine heavy-lift expertise and fleet capacity in an effort to “provide comprehensive solutions to customers on a global scale.”
The partners will focus on offering their combined solutions by jointly bidding on specific projects. While both partners have agreed to an exclusive co-operation, they will continue to operate as separate entities.
“Jumbo and BBC Chartering make a great match, which one can truly call ‘the biggest and the best’. We look forward to forge this alliance and intensify our collaboration on commercial, operational and strategic levels,” Svend Andersen, CEO of BBC Chartering, said.
“We realize that the world of project shipping is changing rapidly, and that our organizations need to focus on building strategic assets that will enable them to create value in the future,” Andersen added.
