Blue Bell Shipping L.L.C. (BBS) is a project freight forwarder first established in the UAE in 1987. BBS prides itself in delivering bespoke logistics solutions for non-standard cargo to challenging destinations.
As a project freight forwarder BBS offers added value services which most general forwarders do not, this includes our own in-house transport engineering department for the production of lifting plans, transport drawings and method statements as well as a vessel chartering desk at our regional head quarters here in Dubai, UAE. BBS also provides a dedicated project team (complete with a project manager, coordinator and sponsor) for each individual project, this allows customers to have a single point of contact for all of their shipments as compared to the more traditional import/export/air/sea split. Upon award, the BBS team mobilises immediately and puts boots on the ground at all cargo origins to start the surveying and reporting process, this pre-shipment study/survey allows our clients to modify their fabrication/shipping plan in accordance with our team’s expert advice to help reduce cost and streamline the logistics process. These features and more are why most major EPCs, oilfield operators, and energy companies trust Blue Bell Shipping with their valuable cargo.
Having been in the business for such a long time, the BBS team has a network of long-term and reliable agents in all countries around the world, however to supplement this Blue Bell Shipping also has its own offices in place at a few key locations, these include multiple offices within the UAE itself (Jebel Ali Port, Dubai-Airport Freezone and mainland Dubai) as well as international offices in Houston, USA – London, UK – Erbil, Iraq – Mersin, Turkey.
Lastly, Blue Bell Shipping avoids the pitfalls/bureaucracy often seen in large multinational organisations by remaining flexible and agile. In real terms, this means that high level decisions can be made by the relevant project manager on a job and conclusions are not subject to time consuming escalations/meetings. Furthermore, the BBS team is structured in a way to provide actual 24/7 service with members of the team dedicated to weekend only and night shift work to ensure clients can remain constantly updated throughout the shipping process (regardless of their time zone).
