Achievements & Recognition
The United States Coast Guard (USCG) in an effort to eliminate substandard shipping has focused on improving methods for identifying poor-quality vessels (targeting schemes). However, regardless of the score that a vessel receives in the USCG targeting matrix, all foreign-flagged vessels are examined no less than once each year. This provides a few incentives for the well run, quality ship.
The high-quality vessels should be recognized and rewarded for their commitment to safety and quality. Therefore, on January 1, 2001, the Coast Guard implemented an initiative to identify high-quality ships, and provide incentives to encourage quality operations. This initiative is called QUALSHIP 21, quality shipping for the 21st century.
BRITISH BULKERS’ INC operating vessels have undergone numerous inspections by the USCG with great success and without identified deficiencies. Due to this fact, our Company's vessels that passed inspections have been recognised by the USCG as Qualship21 vessels.
Moreover, BRITISH BULKERS INC has been awarded by the USCG as a Qualship21 Company.
