BSM (Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement) opens Ship Management & Crew Service Centres in Mexico with currently six vessels under management.

After a year of successful operation out of Mexico, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) has officially opened a new Ship Management Centre and Crew Service Centre in the Aztec country as part of plans to boost its growing presence in Latin America.

The two Centres are located in Mexico City and Ciudad del Carmen respectively, with 10 employees across both and the latter being the centre of offshore activities in the area. The Mexico City office is handling financial and management functions for existing and new customers, in close coordination with the Ciudad del Carmen office which oversees operations and logistics related to the vessels’ management on both the Atlantic and Pacific Coast.

The two Centres provide technical, commercial and crew management services for Mexican and foreign-flagged vessels, consultancy to Mexican ship owners and operators as well as integrated maritime solutions for the wider shipping industry.

BSM Mexico currently has six vessels under management, including two offshore flotel vessels accommodating over 700 industrial workers serving in the Gulf of Mexico for various customers, three tug boats and a panama sized bulk carrier operating on the Mexican Pacific Coast and Ports.

»These two new Centres represent an important step forward for BSM in Mexico, a country that is becoming increasingly important for our global services«, said Cap. Norbert Aschmann, CEO of BSM.

Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) is managing a fleet of 600 vessels. 20,000 employees enable the delivery of services through a network of 10 ship management, 26 crew service and five wholly-owned maritime training centres across the world.
