Spliethoff and BigLift Shipping have decided to combine their offices in Japan. From now on, they will operate from a joint office in Tokyo.
The Tokyo representatives are Kenichi Kikuchi and Ryusuke Miyagawa and the joint office will offer customers a wide range of vessels to suit their transportation requirements.
Spliethoff and BigLift fleet
Spliethoff manages a fleet of over fifty multipurpose, geared, tweendeck vessels, ranging from 12,000 to 23,000 DWT, which all sail the Dutch flag. BigLift Shipping is a member of the Spliethoff Group and handles all heavy, over-sized and special cargoes and engineered transport solutions using a fleet of four heavy transport vessels and 21 heavy-lift vessels – including the Spliethoff P8-Type and P14-Type heavy-lift vessels and the Chung Yang CY-Type heavy-transport vessels – for this purpose.
All the heavy-lift vessels are equipped with their own gear with lifting capacities up to 2200 mt and some have a ro-ro capability for loads up to 2500 mt. The heavy-transport vessels can load ro-ro cargoes up to about 16,000 mt a piece.
