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 combination of offices in Japan follows those in the USA, UK and China. BigLift Shipping and Spliethoff say that the move allows them to benefit from the synergies that exist between them.

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.
