Break bulk cargo carrying Bangladesh-Pakistan-West Asia Gulf Liner service : From 1980 BSC is regularly operating vessels in the Bangladesh-Pakistan-West Asia Gulf Liner route. BSC offers monthly sailing in this route.
Bangladesh/UK-Continent/Africa Liner Service : Since inception BSC has been operating liner service in the Bangladesh/UK-Continent/Africa route on regular basis. Due to rapid containerization of break bulk cargoes, the pattern of sea borne trade has changed radically over the last one decade and as such the traditional liner service of break-bulk cargo vessels between Bangladesh/UK-Continent and African routes became economically non-viable. Besides due to the increasing number of regulations enacted by IMO the regulatory bodies in the European Union ratified their shipping policies and set a very high standard for the vessels calling European ports. It has become a rigorous task for the ship owners to maintain an aged traditional liner vessel up to such a high standard. Under the circumstances BSC had to suspend its regular liner service between Bangladesh/UK-Continent ports and the Africa service since year 2000. However, procurement of new vessels may open opportunities in future to reopen the liner service subject to the inducement of sufficient cargo.
Bangladesh/Far East/Japan Liner Service : BSC started its regular liner service in the Bangladesh/Far East/Japan route from 1980. But due to scarcity of export cargo from Bangladesh to Far East BSC's service in Bangladesh/Far East/Japan route was suspended since 1998. In order to retain the membership of Benjap Conference BSC’s sailing right has been sublet to an active Benjap Conference member Everett Orient Line.
Chartering & Tramping service : BSC engages its vessels both on time and voyage charter. At present most of the vessels are under time charter to various local and foreign companies. With these vessels charterers are operating tramp services in the ports of South America to East/West Africa and Sub-Continent to Middle East/Gulf region.
