History Bites – Ben Line - a long history with a variety of cargoes! 21-Dec-2015

 

Ben Line has a rich history of its involvement in the liner trades since the 1950’s, pioneering a number of new trade lanes which led them to become one of the leading liner companies in the industry.  One of the most notable experiences (and under the spotlight of the media!) that Ben Line had during this time was the transportation of live monkeys on Mv Benlomond (see below photo) from Singapore to a local zoo in Rotterdam in 1959. The consignment safely arrived at its destination although with more monkeys on board than had been originally manifested!  It was not only an enjoyable experience for the crew of Mv Benlomond but served as valuable experience in how to handle live animals on the high seas and resulting with the receiver working with Ben Line to handle similar future shipments!

 
To this day Ben Line Agencies through its third party Liner and Port Agency representations continues to get exposure to whole range of different cargoes and vessels. We also continue to enjoy repeat business regardless of what the cargo is!
